I’d known this place (2020) for clarinet and electronics exists as a string of four distinct dreams, each its own misremembering of a familiar past. Like how memories transform in meaning through repeated recollections, these dreams reconstruct some partial truths of a remembered past but invariably create a new organization. The four sections are titled as follows:
Dream I: gleaming, radiant marble
Dream II: first return
Dream III: the deepest wellsprings
Dream IV: the mind revealing itself to itself
I’d known this place was commissioned by clarinetist Katrina Clements and was completed in March, 2020.
