Dark and Light for String Quartet (Four String Voices)
By Cassandra Venaglia
Dark and Light is an abstract collage of my dreams and what I consider “drone canons”, and the need for justice. This piece came shortly after the announcement that President Trump won the election in 2016. I believe that this work was and is a manifestation of my subconscious of everything that is wrong with the United States. It is a moment to reflect on peace and strife, simultaneously, a contradiction, “organized chaos” as one audience member called it.
