Interval Pairing

Download: Adagio (Night Walk) (pdf)

I began a fast movement that uses interval pairing but then decided to finish the slow movement to turn in tomorrow. A piece for clarinet and piano; I knew fully that all of these compositional techniques are atonal, but I thought I would squeeze it into a tonal context, and of the result I’m not too sure; after all I’m simply “adding tools” to my differently equipped toolbox, right? But I think this will give insight to the way I write. The clarinet solo uses two intervals throughout. I didn’t know how to incorporate this into the piano so I did not succeed there, but it’s still different than my usual.
