Abstract/Artist Statement

This piece, named after the Greek myth of Arachne, is a sonic exploration of the string quartet genre through a peculiar inspiration: spiders. Silly as it may sound, I watched a video of a spider mating dance and I just had to write. I tried to represent the mating dance aspect as well as web-weaving and eating prey, imitating a spider's life. If spider's and imagery associated with them make you uncomfortable, it is advised that you leave the room to avoid any discomfort.
