Dig Absolutely explores musical flux and the ability of dynamic systems to manifest stable states. One way it does this is through the treatment of underlying pitch structures as attractors instead of identities, making it possible for the musical surface to be nuanced and complex while remaining grounded in large-scale harmonic motions. Equally important to the creative process was a concern for string technique, especially in regard to the expressive use of idiomatic and non-idiomatic writing to achieve gestural immediacy and/or fragility.
Dig Absolutely was premiered by Abigail Reisman, Tatevik Ayazyan, Laurel Borden, and Meredith McCook on February 6th, 2011 at Manhattan School of Music's Greenfield Hall.
A recording was released in 2013 on the Spektral Quartet's debut album, Chambers (Parlour Tapes+).
