Pace

Eb clarinet

Bb clarinet

Bass clarinet

Our generation (born in the 1990s) is at a stage that we are searching our position in the society, with moments of miserable, uncertainty. There are so many opportunities out there, yet the competition is cruel. They try to picture the life in the future, try to do their best at present, while some may wish the time went a little slower.

 

The piece starts with a clear pitch F and ended with F sharp, a half step can make a huge difference. There are moments the three clarinets play with the same rhythmic pattern and share the same pitch, but the most of the time they are having entirely different pitches, dynamics, and articulations. The very last part assembles the scattered footsteps that each of them walks in their own pace with different grouping of notes.
