Drawing (composed in 2018 - duration: ca 9:00) is scored for string quartet and flute. It's inspiration comes from the world of pencil, crayon and ink, as they respectively make their mark on paper, and create intricate textures and lines. It is a world where Cy Twombly, Keith Herring, elementary school crayon drawings, Hiroshige, and cave paintings from thousands of years ago, coexist, dancing, singing and meditating together.
