playing outside

string quartet (18')

playing outside is a fun multi-movement string quartet I composed in 2022. The title is a jazz expression that means to play temporarily outside the prevailing scale, chord, or key, and reflects the jazz-influenced musical language. The title of each movement refers to an activity or action that often takes place outside, but also has a double meaning; both elements have been used to create the musical material.
