Gestures — Stases

Gestures — Stases for clarinet and accordion was written as part of the Palendriai International Composer’s Course, Lithuania. It takes as its foundation a basic musical gesture: a sound rising in volume, reaching a peak, and then decaying again. However, this gesture is stretched in time to an almost static point.

The piece is here played by Simonas Tamulis (clarinet) and Tadas Motiečius (accordion).
