Denney Goodhew & Beth Fleenor = BLING!
Screaming silence in a whirling pool of stillness, BLING! formed in 2004 to bring together mentor and student in a performance dynamic that investigates and activates new levels of awareness. The duo, featuring Denney Goodhew on piano and Beth Fleenor on clarinet, explores mostly spontaneously composed chamber music, occasionally throwing in a composed work by Goodhew, with a commitment to ensemble intention and focused energy. BLING! opens itself to the space and the audience to channel, reveal and magnify subtleties in texture, timbre and tone and their inherent rhythm, melody and harmonic form - a meditation on presence and being.
