Times Square for string quartet

2003, 6 minutes

Outwardly, Times Square is about how busy the station is, but inwardly, it's about urban solitude, the contradiction between masses of humanity around you, and no one to talk to or connect with meaningfully. The arc of the piece decays from the external to the internal.
