Hommage Louis Sclavis

for Bass Clarinet and Amplification

Stephan Vermeersch
2008
Start: remove the mouthpiece with mounted reed from the neck and keep it within reach.
Turn the bass clarinet neck 180 towards the microphone (amplification and little reverb).
The microphone should be positioned so it can capture the popping sounds of the keys
coming out of the neck
Moderato e rubato
Hit the keys to create popping sounds.
