Description:
Program note (English): Ecoute, écoute! was composed at the request of Harry Sparnaay for the occasion of the Who's afraid of? project, organized by Iris van der Goot. In this project prominent contemporary soloworks were combined with newly written compositions. Ecoute, écoute! is a tribute to promotors of contemporary music, in this case the renowned bass clarinettist Harry Sparnaay. This prominent musician has fulfilled this role for quite some time and is a source of inspiration for many composers. The opening text of the work describes the almost ritual actions of the musician which often precede the actual playing, they are spoken by Harry's wife, Silvia Castillo. Since Silvia and Harry used to communicate in French during the first stage of their marriage, often using the words: écoute, écoute!, the choice of the title was a predictable one. The material which was used to create the tape part was mostly derived from clarinet samples. The piece was finalist in the Bourges Competition for
Electroacoustic Music in 2000. - RODERIK DE MAN
