This piece, written for string quartet, was written in homage to the "Hellraiser" horror films, directed by Clive Barker. In the films, The Lament Configuration is a little, black, puzzle box that, if solved, promises to bring you eternal life and grant you the secrets of divine ecstasy. Once solved, however, the box opens a portal into hell through which ravenous demons pull the hopeless puzzle solver into an eternity in hell.

The piece, which is minimalist in structure, is black, small, and sinister, just like the box.
