Grasping objects in the fog

Not sure if I have ever posted this piece here. This is for string quartet. The following should be taken, of course, with a pinch of salt and with tongue in cheek... The underlying narrative of this piece is - episodes in the life of an everyman, as he progresses through life. The episodes can be roughly seen as:- (a) Starting out facing the thick fog of uncertainty (b) Missing the bleeding obvious - a pratfall (c) Disagreement (d) Hectic, incessant, unwielding, intolerant life (e) Uncertain, hesitant steps in love (f) The false comfort of alcohol/drugs (g) Pitching one's ideas against the flow / the norm, and rejection (h) Confusion at being totally ignored (i) Demoralised, continues journey (j) Gone to the dogs (k) Continues journey heading towards.......?

    David, I gave this a second listen and have no doubt it is masterfully done.

    You are very good at your art. It shows.

    Honestly tho', I'm afraid that if I listen to it a 3rd time, the next day you will

    find me dangling at the end of a rope. So if hopeless despair was your aim,

    then man, you've succeeded. The antithesis of the romantic.        RS     (romantic sap) 

    ps- very creative in a lonely tragic way

  • Thanks David, I'm back   hahaha      this one had a 1930's feel to it.

    I also enjoyed the acrobatic antics of tanz.tanz           RS
