Can’t You See?

for 2-5 string players

Recorded at Stinson Studios on October 23, 2018 by INVOKE.

Can’t You See? is a piece that I wrote for my friends in INVOKE, a classical string quartet with a heavy bluegrass/folk music tilt. The piece requires a huge amount of improvisation; I provide instructions about how to make the piece happen, and how the performers choose to do it almost entirely up to them. This allows for so much flexibility in expression that no two performances can be the same. In October of 2018 we recorded 5 versions of the same piece, all completely different from each other.
