for amplified string quartet, 5 percussionists and electronics. Performed and commissioned by the Mivos Quartet and Mantra Percussion
In progression I was testing the idea that rhythmic chaos could be beautiful and take on meaning if repeated enough times. Each measure in the piece is kind of a self contained state of anarchy, meanwhile the harmony progresses from light to dark finishing with a joyful cacophony.
"With an evident love for unusual, junkyard sonorities and febrile rhythm, "Progression" brings the maverick sound of mid-century American composer Harry Partch into the electro-classical present day. And its tightly interwoven writing for strings and percussion also suggests that Wohl could compose just fine in purely acoustic settings if he wanted." - Pitchfork
