Well, I’ve never quite done anything like I did at the Utah Clarinet Fest. I talked for an hour about pieces I’ve been working on, and some of the crazy things composers *ask* me to play. About 40 young clarinetists tried some things out with me, we talked soft multiphonics, the softest of notes, the loudest multiphonics and spectral multiphonics, singing and playing, extended flutter tonguing and slap tonguing, extended durations and _very_ very high clarinetting. It was super fun.
Later in the day I performed Daniel Goode’s Long Distance and Lucie Vitkova’s FIVE. On stage at BYU for a bunch of clarinetists, the Vitkova felt like one of the most subversive things I’ve done in awhile… !!!! Feb 22, 2019, BYU Harris Building of Fine Arts
