I've been trying my hand again at writing a string quartet, these are so far my attempts:

"Neoclassical"
https://soundcloud.com/richannes-wrahms/string-quartet-sketch-11

"Feldmanesque"
https://soundcloud.com/richannes-wrahms/string-quartet-sketch-0

It is a difficult task with the way I've set in things. Hopefully you'll listen, find something interesting and a lot to critique too.

I like these works! Especially when there is counterpoint and thicker textures. I don't hear much amplitude variance, which would help your sound, but that's probably a technical issue. It's nice when you go into a quieter passage. Keep at it!

Some nice harmonies in those quartets. Are you working with tone rows again?

For pitch I am using a system that multiplies fragments of tone rows with each other to produce a series of tones for each instrument.

I never really understood pitch multiplication. How does it work?

I do it this way:

You take two chords A and B,

AB is the result of building chord B on every tone of chord A

BA is the result of building chord A on every tone of chord B

usually repeated tones in the resulting sets are omitted but in these String Quartets I didn't omit them.
