By David Balakrishnan, string quartet. Overall description of four movements: “There is a wide range of stylistic ground covered in this music. Some improvisational elements, optional in Lonesome George, mandatory in Flutter point.” String quartet arrangement: violin1, violin2, viola, and cello.
IV. Flutter Point
When a flutter point is reached in the interactions of air currents on a plane, any further change leading towards cessation would result in a crash. The music dances on the razor’s edge of a cataclysmic pileup, one that never materializes, at least not in the way expected. Length: 5:00
