Recorded in Malmö, Sweden and New York, USA, Incipit consists of two tracks, both inspired by a scene from a different short film. The first track, titled “In Your Language”, is an unaccompanied clarinet solo piece, which creatively utilizes the digital sound processing. Sonically it explores connections between the Northern and Southern European musical folklore language on the one hand, and the musical features found in the South American Andean and Amazon Rain Forest regions. But the emotional idea of the track is the urgency to appreciate and preserve rich folklore traditions of various small nations, which are slipping away.
The second and the title track is a clarinet and violin duet, in post-minimalist electro-acoustic style with some improvisational art-music and jazz elements. Inspired by a romantic scene from an independent short film, it explores the idea of nascent relationship possibility.
