Stick Dance 2 has a tangled and cannibalistic history. It was originally 1989 reworking of Stick Dance (for clarinet, marimba, piano of 1987) which in turn was based on Shadow's Dance (clarinet, violin, piano, 1985) and it has subsequently been revised in 2005 for Dean-Emmerson-Dean in the light of Stick Dance 3 (clarinet, violin, piano, 1993). This sort of process of transformation has its own fascination; it is almost as though one were taking a photo of a growing plant over a space of time from different angles. The essence of the thing stays the same but the parts of the whole change position and take on new importance.
Instrumentation: Viola, clarinet in B flat, piano.
Duration: 8 min.
Written for: Dean-Emmerson-Dean
