Abstract

Eye o da Hurricane for string quartet (2017) Angela Elizabeth Slater ye o da hurricane was written for a collaborative workshop with writers at the St. Magnus Music Festival, Orkney, Scotland, in 2017. The piece takes Einspiration from Christian Tait’s poem “Fae da Journal o a Croft er’s Wife.” The piece is notated as a graphic score, which gives expressive room for the per- formers to extend or shorten sections as they feel appropriate. The piece hangs on a dramatic viola line that expresses the solitude and pain of the Croft er’s Wife, who is surrounded by both a storm on Shetland and the turbulence of World War I. The piece particularly draws on imagery from certain lines within the poem: Sae here I am ida eye o da hurricane while a aathing crashes an roars an birls aboot me. Destructive an oot o control. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ta read atween da lines, or hoo my hert vibrates laek fi ddle- strings in tune wi der black despair . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . sood
