Jazzture (Clarinet and Piano)

These four pieces were originally written for a re-arranging project of Charlie Chaplin’s silent film with a string quartet in 2010, then later rearranged into a duet version for clarinet and piano. These pieces were composed by improvising on the piano while watching Chaplin’s film, capturing the gesture and touch of Jazz music; focusing on actor’s facial expression; imitating actor's movements and emotions through musical colors. After all, I tidied up my musical ideas into string quartet then blend it into the film. Therefore during the composing process, I actually started with piano.
