Sheet Music: Score
Death stench : for amplified flute, amplified clarinet in A and piano / Matthew Hindson.
by Matthew Hindson (1995)
Death Stench is concerned with three main ideas: 1) a programmatic reference to physical death, and the instinctive fight of any being to resist its onset; 2) a contemplation of life experiences before the point of a being's death, and an imagined assessment of their value after life has ceased; and 3) references to the musical genre 'death-metal', in which dark musical and textual motives (hence the title) are given virtuosically theatrical treatments. DeathStench was commissioned by the Sydney Alpha Ensemble, for first performance by them. It has also been performed by the Sydney ensemble Coruscations, and was a short-listed composition in the inaugural Ladislav Kublik International Composition Prize.
