ERASURE

2017

(Amplified string quartet) 13'30

Programme note

“If women are invisible, then it doesn't really matter how important they are, because in the public consciousness they don't exist.” 

 

— Dr Amanda Foreman, Historian

Amplification

The piece incorporates some spoken elements, so the violins and viola should be amplified with pickups that will amplify both the instrument and the performer's voice. The cello should have a pickup or microphone, and the cellist should have a second, separate microphone for their spoken part.
