Six quarks : for two guitars / by Richard Charlton.
by Richard Charlton (2009)
Quarks are fundamental matter particles that are constituents of neutrons and protons and other hadrons. There are six different types of quarks. Each quark type is called a flavour. The idea for these duos was suggested by Janet Agostino and I have tried to capture in sound something of the 'flavour' of each Quark; even if in name only! As befits their fundamental nature I have tried to used the smallest particles of music; that of the basic intervals in order to build up these little movements.
