Running, Thinking, Breathing


Clarinet Quartet


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.
