stay for string quartet (2012)
Premiered at the 2012 New Music on the Point and High Score Festivals.
Selected for performance by the Calder Quartet at the 2013 UC Davis "Art of Migration" Festival.
stay is a space-time where complete focus and total absence meet. The music is trying to be a meditation, but there's something missing...there's an urge that refuses to be repressed: is it the desire to escape or the desire to connect?
