You Haven’t Said a Word is an attempt to write music that reflects moments of intense stress in relationships, specifically instances in which neither person voices their emotions. I represent this unspoken tension, as well as its eventual resolution in musical terms. I do not follow any specific story, and the work is not programmatic, but my goal is for the tension and resolution to be apparent to the listener. The title influenced the composition of the piece, with the material at the beginning sounding very static, dissonant, and slowly evolving.

I have a version for cello quartet as well as a version for solo cello and electronics.
