Written in 1965 as a gift to flutist partner, Karen, Ambages is a slow-motion dance with ambiguous phasing: where does one stop? … the next one begin?
As with the myth, we are carried along by the wanderings of a melodic thread. The string quartet members periodically re-group, one soloing, the others weaving around the line. There are intrusions of computer “otherworldly” computer sound but the journey ends peacefully.
