    2nd String Quartet 

    Strange animals float chaotically between heaven and earth, between gravity and free-dom, in the power of bizarre, unharnessed force fields.

    Three movements, one transitioning to the next, with the string quartet as a percussion instrument of sorts. Changes of metre, rapidity, counter-argument, consistency, densifica- tion, structure, oscillating glissandi, homophonic, violent, viola solo, cello solo, formation of groups, groping, calm and intimate, slowly rising, glissando figure, hardly interacting, sigh, four instruments, heightened intensity, energetic, percussive, a moody solo, lots of pizzicato, obsessive, high D, altered reminiscences, repetition, first violin, idling, accelera- tion, an abrupt ending. An inflated balloon losing air.

    “The tempest raged around me and my thrashing little craft, gusting wildly beneath the stars, which it seemed to set a shuddering.” - Jean Paul, Des Luftschiffers Giannozzo Seebuch
