STRINGS

Emergent
string quartet - [6'30] - 2015

To emerge is to rise up or come into notice from concealment or obscurity.  Given the constant addition of countless new ideas, emotions, and memories to our repertoire of experiences, which parts will we remember?  Which events, theories, or stories will be Emergent at the end of each day?  At the end of each year?  At the end of our lives?
