Liquid Crystal (12'40, 2000, rev 2006)

Liquid crystals occupy the middle ground between crystalline solids and ordinary liquids in terms of symmetry and energy. With live electronics transforming the clarinet sound and pre-prepared materials adding a layer of ambiguity, the clarinet and computer play a game with the analogy to liquid crystal. The game shapes the musical expression, which is sometimes playful, sometimes tense and sometimes melancholy.
