This string quartet was written as an early experiment in the beginning part of my PhD composition portfolio. It explores the tradition of string quartet writing with the added cross-genre hybrid influences of modal jazz, minimalism and film scoring techniques. The piece is dedicated to my son Wolfgang, and the structure of the piece is loosely based around a 'typical' morning with him.
