Duo album with James Fei on Contrabass Clarinet album out soon

James Fei and I have been hard at work on recording a piece of his for two contrabass clarinets.  The piece is comprised of two parts, the first slow, continuous held notes in the upper which we allow harmonics to come in and out of the texture creating the illusion of there being more than two players at times.  The second part is at the very bottom of the contra range is aggressive attack after aggressive attack.  The piece builds until the attacks overwhelm everything and take over completely.

The album will be out soon and for the time being will only be available on reel-to-reel tape.....I'm trying to talk james into a digital version but i don't think he's going to concede that one.
