Leisner ponders life from nothingness, its force of presence, and its return to nothingness, using sustained strings and increasing/decreasing intensity as a basis upon which to build his impressions. The quartet progresses from near-silence to full-on life-force, before slowly dying away. For advanced performers. Duration: 9'.
