As Bright and Cold as Glass (2019) 12'

(Amplified string quartet + electronics)


Programme Note

In the developed world we have the privilege of taking for granted free access to water.

In many poor societies, however, it is the role of women and girls to seek and collect water, and they often face a choice between work that is hard, time-consuming, and dangerous, or finding money to pay for clean drinking water.

Commissioned and premiered by PUBLIQuartet in 2019, As Bright and Cold as Glass explores the role of water as a literal and figurative life stream, and a liminal space separating the rich from the poor.
