Commissioned by Tate St Ives. First performed by the Kreutzer Quartet, Tate Gallery, St Ives, 17 September 2006. Recorded by the Kreutzer Quartet on 'Trajectories: Music by David Gorton' (metier, 2010)

String Quartet: Trajectories was commissioned as part of the Instruments of Abstraction events at the Tate Gallery, St Ives. The piece was designed so that it can be ‘installed’ into the performance space, initially the large gallery at Tate St Ives, with the performers being able to sit at the edges of the space surrounding the audience, or in the middle of the space surrounded by the audience. The microtonal tuning of the quartet creates different beating patterns depending on space and disposition.
