for clarinet (2021) 4'20"
Bridge explores hidden connections between seemingly disparate sounds... the rich chalumeau to the pale throat tones to the bright clarion, the most extreme pianissimo to a shocking fortissimo, the most vicious marcato to the gentlest legato and much more. Do they not all lie on a broad spectrum joined together by bridges?
I invite the listener to reflect on how people of different creed and color might also be able to build bridges between them.
