    Programme notes – stif upper lip (2014, revised version 2018)
    I shared an apartment in Montréal with a clarinet player, Hilary, who also had a dog, Joey. Often
    Hilary would play her bassclarinet and Joey would sing with it. Joey would mirror the register
    shifts of the clarinet with her howls.
    In this piece I allowed myself to be inspired by Joey's howls - persistent, insisting, penetrating,
    stunning in their variety – as well as certain character traits of the clarinettist Andrea Nagy.
