After the Flood

for clarinet, tuba, and music video, with optional dance (2004)

(duration ca. 5:40)

 

After the Flood is an excerpt from Turning Two Hundred — a 50-min work for orchestra, jazz band, soloists, electronic music, video, and dance, commissioned by Ohio University to commemorate its bicentennial.  Before the Army Corps of Engineers were called in to reroute the river in 1969, floods routinely inundated Ohio University.  It wasn’t so much a question of if, but when and how deep. The purely electronic introduction is subtitled Springtime on the Hocking. The duet itself is entitled After the Flood, though a more accurate but completely unwieldy title would be After the Storms Have Ended and Floods Have Arrived, But Before the Waters Have Receded.
