Sunyata Dance

Sunyata Dance

for clarinet and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: clarinet and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
‘Sunyata’ is an ancient Sanskrit word. The structure of this work is focused on temporal evenness and the vertical and horizontal balance between the clarinet and the orchestra. The essential idea is that any point can be the beginning and any point can be the end; any part can be the whole, and the whole can be any part.

Sunyata Dance is part of the ‘Renyi Metre’ work series, with ‘Renyi Metre’ meaning ‘based on one beat’. Random beats of monophony and homophony are also realised in this system, forming the multidimensional character of ‘Renyi Metre’. The notation of ‘Renyi Metre’ can be a challenge for the conductor, orchestra and soloist, but this is in keeping with its nontextual and non-syllogistic principle.
