CAPRICORN’S NOSTALGIC CRICKETS (1972) 2017 Version by Samuel Dunscombe WP
HORATIU RADULESCU
SMALL INFINITIES TOGETHER (2017) WP
SAMUEL DUNSCOMBE

Capricorn’s Nostalgic Crickets for seven clarinets is a set of 96 unique sound events, each emerging from and receding back into silence. The complex tones produced by the players combine to create a sound mass so vibrant, pulsating, and alive that it inspired Horatiu Radulescu to develop a whole new compositional theory – which he called Sound Plasma. Samuel Dunscombe builds on Radulescu’s ‘plasmatic’ conception of sound, love for massed groups of identical instruments, and non-linear approach to musical time, blowing it out by a factor of 7 to create Small Infinities Together, a world premiere piece for up to 49 live clarinets. BIFEM will bring together a community clarinet orchestra to realize the new work, creating a sonic experience of gravitas in one of Bendigo’s most iconic architectural and acoustic spaces, the Sacred Heart Cathedral.
