About

It is for amplified clarinet (with Ibanez Digital Delay DM1100), percussionist and drum machine (Roland TR606). It is for two human performers and a machine. After extensive use of realtime signal processing during live performances with Ivan Zagni, Peter Scholes composed this piece for a series of concerts and a Radio New Zealand recording with percussionist Bruce McKinnon. The music contrasts the human performers with the mechanical precision of the drum machine. Sometimes the clarinet or the drum machine are processed through a delay device, the settings of which are varied throughout the piece to create different delay times and feedback effects.

The use of real time signal processing was also used by the composer in his composition “Islands II” which represented New Zealand in the 1993 UNESCO International Rostrum of Composers. Later, Peter Scholes composed “Bonk” for Bruce McKinnon and the NZSO.
