Kattrin Redux is one of a trilogy of works, the other members of which are Kattrin's Drum for percussion and quadraphonics, and Kattrin Extant for trombone and quadraphonics. Kattrin Redux is a work for live bass clarinet and quadraphonic pre-recorded sound. However, the pre-recorded sound is always triggered by the clarinetist by means of MIDI (or other suitable interface), activated by a foot switch, such that all aspects of the performance remain under the control of the single live performer. The bass clarinet element of the work is performed unamplified and makes only slight use of extended techniques. The quadraphonic sound is emitted from four loudspeakers (or sets of loudspeakers) placed equidistant from each other and as near as possible to the extremities of the performance space. The performer and the audience may be situated according to preference, anywhere within the quadraphonic square. A full set of audio files are supplied with the score but performers will find it more convenient simply to use the performance ready audio 'bundle' also supplied.
