Sheet Music: Score
Colouring in the sky : bass clarinet concerto / Mark Clement Pollard.
by Mark Pollard (2003)
This work is inspired by the art making process of Utopia region aboriginal artist Emily Kame Kngwarreye that involved the creation of an image that was then painted over with an explosion of dots. This process of "colouring in" gradually masked what lay beneath to create another overlaid story. Her works are intensely spiritual with a strong sense of serene beauty and harmony. This process of colouring and becoming is an essential element of this concerto in which the resonant and melodic qualities of the solo instrument gradually unfold an underlying theme which is coloured and masked to create a "sound snapshot" of the colouring in of the night sky.
