Deformation and Tranquility (1987) for B-flat clarinet and piano is Gary Powell Nash’s first musical work composed during his formal composition studies and it is one of his few compositions conceived before 1990 that continues to be consistently programmed on a regular basis. The title stems from what Nash describes as a deformed way of treating themes and motives, a contrasting tranquil section, a solo cadenza that immediately follows the tranquil section and a return of the deformed music. Deformation and Tranquility features many jazz-like harmonies, melodies and rhythms, with the rhythms consisting of fast, highly syncopated 16th note passages.
