Action for String Quartet new music by Troy Schafer.
Note from the composer;
“The premiere of Action for String Quartet was performed by the Sensory Conviction Quartet on March 26, 2014, at the Columbus Auditorium in Chicago, Illinois. I arranged the piece while in transit to each of the performers’ homes, where I distributed their parts. From the passenger seat of our car, I laid a manuscript notebook across my lap and held a handful of pens above it. I allowed the tips to hover above the pages like a portable seismograph. Subsequently, bumps, potholes and motion of travel were transcribed as notation on the page, producing a kind of abstract road map as well as a musical score.”
