About the Work
This work was written for my friend Diego Vasquez who commissioned many small works for a dancing clarinetist. I decided on incorporating the dance element directly into the music by having the clarinet stomping out rhythms. This made the two aspects (being the music and the dance) become directly related while keeping a certain amount of freedom in interpretation for the actual dance movement.
