for String Quartet

Score and parts


First performed by the Elias Quartet at Wigmore Hall on 4 May 2015. Commissioned by the Nicholas Boas Charitable Trust and The RVW Trust for the Elias String Quartet and dedicated to Elisabeth and Bob Boas.

Afference is a physiological term describing how the brain receives signals from the body: how blood moves through vessels towards organs, and how nerve fibres convey sensory experiences to the central nervous system. Whilst composing Afference I have been concerned with how and when we become conscious of sensory information - things we touch, see, hear - and how this might sound.

The work lasts approximately 23 minutes and is cast in two equal length movements.
