Zugzwang

A movement for string quartet. Demo features robot string players. Please spare a thought for the robots as they saw sadly at their instruments. Human musicians interested in playing it, please email me for the score.

    Not bad at all.

    Who are the robots?

    Thanks gestroud!

    Macy: the robots used here are those of the Synful Orchestra plugin. Not to be confused with the Existential Robots of Supreme Ultimate Fist.

    Would you mind if I played this music on my podcast?

    If you have to power to let me do so, please contact me: charles (at) MSBPodcast.com

    I found the music quite fascinating.

    I’d love to know how you composed it (and with what hardware etc.)

    (I’m listening to the Existential Robots as I type this. :-)

    Just awesome. And not to detract from my praise for your musicianship, but that plugin seems really impressive!

    I think this might be excellent for wind ensemble if you’re happy for us to transcribe and perhaps transpose?

    EVOL and Zugswang made a beautiful interlude in a working day – thank you.
