Contents May Differ was commissioned by and written for bass clarinetist Pat O'Keefe. The title is in reference to the sometimes unexpected world of sound contained in an instrument, once you--so to speak--open the box. In this case, I am opening the box of sound with the aid of electronic amplification. The use of multiple microphones allows for intense magnification and dissection of the bass clarinet's palette of sound, revealing beautiful spectra that often go unheard if you are more than a few inches from the instrument, let alone in the audience.
