String Quartet No. 9 (Spectrums)

  (2006)

Synopsis

Spectrums¬†was my first graphic score. Not only that, but measuring 44″ x 28″, it is also my first large-format score. I was intensely inspired by the scores of Barry Guy, and thus my ninth quartet was born. It features many indeterminate elements, including order of events and interpretation of graphic notation. The score does not come with any additional notes from me and therefore the piece relies completely on the performers’ ability to interpret and notation for themselves.
