Notes de programme :
The toy piano has been intertwined in many of my creative projects for the past several years, as I am continually inspired by its bright, percussive tone, its slightly fringe tuning, and its playful connotations as a concert instrument. For this project, I paired the toy piano with three pitched bicycle bells. What attracted me to the bicycle bells, in addition to the vibrant timbral possibilities, was the “everyday” aspect: for many people, including myself as a biker, the sound of bicycle bells is part of their everyday sound world.

The main motivator of the piece is the spinning out of ornate, unpredictable lines, interpolated with tremolo bicycle bells. The already unusual timbral world of the toy piano is expanded with the three (perky? ominous?) bicycle bells. The piece hides up in the high frequency rafters, touching down briefly here and there to relieve some of the suspension.

"clangor", for toy piano and bicycle bells, was written for Margaret Leng Tan for the 2013 UnCaged Toy Piano Festival.
