Bass Clarinet: s.laag

s.laag is an interactive work especially composed for Dutch Bass Clarinettist Marij Van Gorkom, as part of the project started in 2015. The piece explores the concept of "Extended Reality", taking place in the intersections of the Real, Virtual and the Modular Augmentation of a musical instrument. The environment is the Expo 58 in Brussels, where Pavilions from different nations become the stage for the bass clarinet. The player needs to dis-embody and re-embody the musical instrument which transforms itself into a new self (mobile, parts, human-like) unfolding new degrees of musical expression.
