This string quartet gives the listener the experience of four parts that function like dancers moving in ever-increasing circles that periodically intersect. The tension created by movement between these four parts gives the piece the energy that sustains it throughout.  This work provides an excellent exercise in precision rhythm and coordination between the four performers.

Working as a jazz musician, I learned to compose in real time, channeling musical ideas from my head into my instrument and then out into space. My notated compositions then were ordered, with the disorder saved for improvisation. Composing this string quartet, I worked to merge the movement, energy, and disorder of my improvisation with the logic and order of my notated compositions.
