Ne (quartet)

In this piece each performer plays at a different tempo with individual metronome. You do not need to synchronize with others, therefore there is no full score, only individual parts. It is important to start at the same time or almost simultaneously, and then monitor your metronome. The title of the work is simultaneously dedicated to the inert gas neon, denoted in chemistry Ne, and the impossibility of creating a quartet (because "Ne" means "not" in Russian). Neon does not form bonds with other elements, thats why it called inert. Each instrument in this music is also inert and only occasionally modifies patterns.
