The Slow Splintering
for string quartet, percussion quartet, and electronic sounds
The Slow Splintering loosely follows the sonic and physical trajectory of glass shattering — an initial explosion, a cracking and fissuring, a breaking apart into shards, and the settling of those shards — in slow motion, taking place over 12 minutes and 24 seconds.
