June Emerson: 2 Bass Clarinets Score Part


A few words from Chris Jolly

BONK! is a duet that features an ever developing groove built up between the 2 performers. It’s staggered opening evolves into a driving and pulsating mix of rich bass and floating lyrical sounds that highlight the range of the instrument it was intended for.

The piece can be performed as a duet of equal instruments or with the option to perform this as a soloist and track which is available upon request or recorded by the performer beforehand. This is a great opportunity to experiment with different ways of presenting this piece within a performance. Chris Jolly (2019)
