for saxophone quartet

Crumblings started out through a call for sketches at the Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2017 with the Keuris Quartet. After working with the ensemble, the finished work was written for the 2018 edition of the same festival. In close relation to Isolated strands of reflection, the piece deals with fragments, but also with disparate materials, and drastic, form-wise shifts of the treatment of musical time (more in relation to the string quartet Plasticity).
