Paradise Music

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.

"Paradise Music"

Sam Karam, clarinet

Robin Sharp, marimba

Christine Lee, double bass
