Running, Thinking, Breathing

2016

Clarinet Quartet

4'00''

This piece is about the connection between the body and mind through the act of running. It partly depicts the mental process we experience when beginning a physical challenge and pushing through to its end. However, it also investigates our ability to calm a busy mind through physical activities like running, by focussing on the fundamental processes of movement and breathing.

Composed for The Clari Boys. Premiered at a student concert in 2016.
