Sheet Music: Score
Clique : clarinet, percussion and accordion / Damien Ricketson.
by Damien Ricketson (2013)
Clique began as part of a larger project under the title The Secret Noise: a cycle of works exploring cultural practices that deliberately shield music from public life. With Clique I was interested in the occurrence of closed musical circles and the use of music as an identity-commodity to advance one's own (and exclude others') social standing. In conceiving the work I was particularly conscious of the West's own chamber music tradition: from its pre-concert function as music heard only by royalty to music exclusively composed and played by groups of friends in private settings. In composing the work I treated an Adagio from one of the Haydn trios (No.97 in D major) as though it were a mysterious foreign script that I imaginatively translated and reconstructed into my own peculiar language featuring an unusual sonic combination of instruments and a highly ornate and microtonal clarinet.
