Prog. notes: “Tempora mutantur” is a Latin phrase meaning “the times are changed.” It is usually stated in a hexametric form, followed by another phrase “nos et mutamur in illis,” meaning “we too are changed in them.” This piece is one in a series of electroacoustic pieces relating to the motion of time and its effects on sounds. It is commissioned by and written for clarinetist Pei-Lun Tsai. The fixed sample playbacks used are pre-recorded clarinet sounds and synthesized materials. Live processing techniques such as feedback delay, chorusing, flanging, harmonizer and granular synthesis are also employed throughout most of the sections.
