Garth Knox Thesis on Extended Techniques for Strings

July 12, 2019, 2:50 AM · As I am waiting for delivery of the sheet music for Viola Spaces and Violin Spaces by Garth Knox I have been studying his and Diamanda Dramms excellent videos on Youtube. And today I discovered that he has written a thesis discussing the techniques used in Violin Spaces and his string quartet "Satellites" written for the Kronos Quartet project "50 for the future".
The thesis is available for download here.
