Oil and Water

“Oil and Water” is the first piece of my new Tableaux Électroniques project.
This track is marked by some stark contrasts: between acoustic and electronic instruments, between fast and slow sections, between swing and straight rhythms.
These contrasts won’t blend, but they will come to a sort of uneasy cohabitation, just like oil and water sometimes do. All the melodies you hear are played by a clarinet, at times heavily distorted and effected.

“Oil and Water” emulsify two themes taken from previous Moods and Modes pieces: Marilyn for the slow section and Geronimo for the fast one. Follow the links to hear the original versions.
