ghost is born (2017) Tyler Kline Duration: ca. 5’30” GTK Music (ASCAP) www.tylerklinemusic.com Commissioned by and dedicated to Jessica Pollack

Instrumentation Clarinet in Bb Bassoon Harp

Program Notes The primary overarching concept of ghost is born is the idea of something that is not real emerging from what is real. This is represented musically by the sound in between the actual music happening: sound that is perceived, but not necessarily intended. A major example of this is the “spectral rumble” at the beginning as heard in the harp. The low tones in the harp are meant to clash together in dissonance, resulting in resultant pitches that are much higher in frequency than the notes being performed. This concept also appears throughout the piece, as in the woodwind keyclicks and tone-color trills.

Performance Notes General The piece begins Senza misura, and should be performed very slowly without tempo. Approximate timings are given on the score. These may be extended but never shortened. Tremolo figures should always be performed in varying speeds and generally be “irregular” sounding. Key-clicks should be performed without air unless otherwise noted. The shape of the keyclicking figures indicate general contour and not specific pitches. Volume is always as loud as possible (though in reality this will be close to a piano volume). Right-pointing arrows indicate a gradual change in playing condition: i.e., unpitched keyclicks/air to pitched notes. Noise-based artifacts that occur during this transition are expected and encouraged. Bisbigliando specifies a tone-color trill, and should be performed by alternating between regular and alternative fingerings. Difference in tuning between fingerings should be emphasized. Speed should vary and be irregular. Cloud-like: in measures 30-33, the clarinet and bassoon are instructed to perform the figure in a cloud-like way. A non-togetherness should be emphasized in this passage, and rhythmic accuracy should not be precise. The result should be a messy texture between the two opposing patterns. Feathered beaming indicated a gradual speeding up or slowing down within a beat. If the figure takes place over a duration greater than a quarter note, this is specified above the figure (i.e., x : h ).


I

Clarinet indicates a 3/4 flat.

Airy tone should result in an airy sound that accompanies the pitch (from the embouchure). The pitch should be weaker in order to achieve a noticeably airy sound.

Bassoon Multiphonics occur only at the beginning of the piece, and are numbered 1 and 2.

1:

2:

These are suggested fingerings and pitch content - the player may utilize alternative multiphonics at their discretion, as long as Multiphonic 1 contains a C4 or C5, and Multiphonic 2 contains a Db4 or Db5.

Harp Spectral rumble should be achieved by allowing pitches in the low register to clash with one another until a perceived overtone is audible. Measure 4 boxed notation: pitches should be repeated quickly in order to continue a spectral rumble and elicit overtone(s). Measure 49: tremolo should continue through the glissando.
