Pulse Break for Two Clarinets and Percussion

Martin, Theresa



"The pulse of your life: does it have a regular rhythm, is it constantly shifting, is it full of energy and vitality? What makes your pulse change suddenly? Perhaps a love, friendship, lucky opportunity, ambitious goal, exciting challenge, unexpected surprise? Do you accept the change? Does your pulse continue on as before, or is it changed forever?"

- Theresa Martin
