Written for remote performance by the Friction Quartet during the 2020 pandemic, Airwaves aims to co-opt the unpredictable time delays of performance over online platforms such as Streamyard or Zoom with sections of loosely defined timing, "follow-the-soloist," and independent meters by player, in hopes of invoking just a touch of the windchime's freedom.
