Movement for Flute, Cello, Clarinet & Piano by Nicole Chamberlain
Piano score and parts (includes parts for both Clarinet in A and Clarinet in Bb)
Extended Technique for the flute: “Ts” – for a breathy, percussive effect this syllable is to be used as articulation for the pitch indicated in the notation, in a “beat boxing” style.
Movement is based on three monumental structures created by Alexander Calder. The first movement called Sailing is based on “La Grande Voile” (The Big Sail) (1965) at MIT in Cambridge, MA. The second movement Mobility is based on “Three Up, Three Down” (1973) at High Museum of Art, in Atlanta, GA. The final movement, flying, is based on “Flamingo” (1974) at Federal Center Plaza in Chicago, IL. All three structures focus on animation and movement through space, and each musical piece is based on the aspects of moving music forward in representation of each structure.
