for string quartet
Spider Web is a piece for string quartet which aims to create a narrative primarily through an organization of a multidimensional space defined by the physical properties of the instruments, the gestural activity of the performers and the accumulated instrumental tradition. The textural surface of the piece and its general structure are constructed through sound montage techniques inspired by film montage. The symbol of the astrological element of air acts as a concept which unifies the fragmented and multidimensional narrative. The piece can be performed together with the electroacoustic piece Acid Drops and it is also part of the larger modular piece Magical Theatre.
