About this workgloaming
/ˈɡləʊmɪŋ/ noun: gloaming
1. twilight; dusk."hundreds of lights are already shimmering in the gloaming”
The initial material for this double string quartet was taken from several recordings of local birdsong, which was then lightly manipulated to create pitches and rhythms. Alongside this chirruping, I tried to encapsulate the beauty and fleetingness of the the gloaming; the depths of blue running through the sky immediately after the sunset has finished and before it fully becomes night.
