Fling is a short, lively piece for string quartet that is fun to play, and uses techniques specific to string instruments. It works well when played by an electric or amplified string quartet, but works equally well when played by a traditional quartet. Fling flirts with trip-hop and jazz rhythms, and melodies abound.
