Rimpi is a bass clarinet solo miniature written for Petra Stump-Linshalm, with whom I’ve had the pleasure to cooperate for a long time already. I started composing Rimpi with material from my duo Rimbalzi (2021) for bass clarinet and percussion, and the bouncing character in the beginning of the duo indeed found its way to end of the solo. This time, however, it is rather sinking, heavy steps that lead to this lighter bouncing – the title is Finnish for a wet, sinking spot in a swamp.
