for Clarinet, Contrabass and Marimba
Paradise Music is the final piece composed during my five-year Idyllwild residency.
The piece is dedicated in memoriam to Samuel Karam.
Titles for the eight movements were chosen randomly. I closed my eyes and pointed to an entry in my tattered Merriam Webster dictionary.
The entry nearest to my finger became a movement title.
A quirky method for a quirky, fun piece.
Sam Karam, clarinet
Robin Sharp, marimba
Christine Lee, double bass
