I composed this piece as part of my capstone project for my major in music with a composition concentration. The piece is a process piece that slowly adds notes to a one-measure unit until the climax after which notes are slowly removed until the piece is void of notes. I originally composed this for piano then orchestrated it for a string quartet.

Performed by:

  • Sarah Chung, Scripps '15, violin
  • Morgan Mastrovich, HMC '15, violin
  • Philip Woods, HMC '15, viola
  • Scott Chen, HMC '15, cello

Special thanks to Bill Alves, HMC faculty and advisor for this project.
