Time Asymmetry of Entropy is my third incursion into the string quartet genre. In this case, the concept behind this piece is the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, which establishes that the entropy of any
isolated system always increases over time.
Thus, Time Asymmetry of Entropy starts with a possible definition of entropy into musical terms. Durations, pitches, timbres and dynamics, for each instrument, have been manipulated according to models developed from scratch by the composer. The main goal is to reach the perception of the continuous entropy increase over time while keeping the coherence and musical discourse.
This piece has not been premiered yet, although some excerpts can be listened below:
