The Soul is the Arena
for solo bass clarinet and electronics(2010, rev. 2013)
|Premiere||November 19, 2010; The Velvet Lounge, Chicago; Joshua Rubin, bass clarinet|
|Technical requirements||The stereo electronic track is divided into sections, which are triggered by the performer with a standalone patch, created by Joshua Rubin. The patch, built for Mac only, includes amplification and reverb options using a multichannel interface, and can be triggered with a foot controller. Details and download link are included in the "Readme PDF" with score purchase.|
With the exception of small spaces, the bass clarinet should be amplified, and a subwoofer should be used in combination with the stereo speakers. The bass tones should be physically felt.
