Score and parts:


This piece is an arrangement of my Quartet No. 6 (Ma) for string orchestra. The quartet was written while I was staying in an Air BnB in Tallinn, Estonia and begin life when I picked up a set of windchimes the owner had left lying around. The piece is an orchestration of those chimes and imagines a great hand jiggling the quartet to initiate each gesture.

Quartet recording released on Entangled on 25th October 2019.

Ma (string orchestra) premièred by the Glasgow Barons
