Paul Hoskin, contrabass clarinet
As a soloist, Paul Hoskin does not involve his [compositional] self with Other selves. The eighty minute contrabass clarinet performance is both a statement and a refusal to engage with statement. What occurs is (or, as close to...) the strictly sonic. Multiple phonics, multiple (the complete array of) dynamics. The musical range bears simply with limits: all of ours.
