Space Exploration : for string quartet / Matthew Laing.

Work Overview

An encore like this gives an opportunity to really explore an atmosphere or a space rather than a fully-fledged musical narrative. This short work uses a limited harmonic range and delicate fleeting textures to very actively stay in the one spot, like a hyperactive nocturne.
