Wait

for string quartet (2004)

Wait is essentially an attempt to access a kind of musical time that is not based on strict meter as much as it is based on the coordination of events. The piece progresses as specific goals for each of the players are achieved.

(FLUX Quartet: Tom Chiu and Conrad Harris – violins, Max Mendel – viola, Dave Eggars – cello)
