for string quartet
2008/2015 | ca. 8 min

Programme notes

motion/less is comprised of two contrasting musical ideas: one active and rhythmic, the other calm and melodic. These two ideas appear and reappear in alternation until one gradually diminishes and gives way to the other. 
 
This piece is a rethinking and subsequently shorter version of String Quartet #2, which was premiered by The Madawaksa Quartet, 27 September, 2009, The Music Gallery, Toronto, Canada.
 
This recording of motion/less is an edited version of that performance.
