five strings (2022)

Recently I have written a series of pieces that are concerned in one way or another with the presentation of unique, and yet similar, events or objects. In this work I examine closely a chord played by four guitars and bass guitar. There is no repetition in the piece, except gesturally.

The work is available in two versions, one single-movement piece and as five shorter pieces.
