Score for String Quartet
Duration: 2 x 6 minutes
The score should be played and recorded twice.
For the first recording, the instruments should be close mic'd as hot as possible; the recording engineer should make sure the smallest movement is audible. Musicians should play the score as quietly and softly as possible, like a whisper.
For the second recording, only room mics should be used. The players should play the score with vigor, not like a scream, but with a clear and crisp voice.
