Program Note

Silichin Valley was composed between November 2017 to March 2018 in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, San Francisco (United States), and Dresden (Germany). This work for clarinet/bass clarinet, violin, cello, and video, is an attempt to portray Silicon Valley of 2018 with irony. The video was shot while driving in and around the city. With deep learning, the cars in the video were recognized and replaced with PNG images of diverse, computer graphically generated penis/faucet.
