Markus Reuter – String Quartet No.1 ‘Heartland’, Matangi Quartet [Solaire Records 2019]

By Marcello Nardi Apr 16, 2019 0

I just remembered that when I started composing last summer, a friend asked what kind of techniques I am using. I tried to explain. I remembered a game child play. It’s like a moving part on a world, like you have a complex music composition here on the bottom, but on top there’s a shape moving, which allows to see only some things. This is actually how Heartland was composed. It’s like a shape with holes that moved on top of a colored surface.
