Paradigm Lost is in one continuous movement and explores the contrast between quiet, delicate, recessive music, and more aggressive takes on what, down deep, is similar material. The attempts to resolve these different takes, or the failure to resolve them, are at the heart of the piece. As the music progresses, the quartet divides into various duo and solo/trio combinations in which the recurring thematic materials are heard in changing contexts. Paradigm Lost is dedicated with enthusiasm and respect to the Prism Quartet.
