A sequel to Opus_004. Another quartet with the same instrumentation. I thought of this one as being an adventure because it explored different material. It also has meter changes, which isn't something I did much with in previous music. Letter A is the primary melody, then there is the B melody 8 measure after B. The A melody returns after C before introducing a new material at measure 78 and letter D. Letter E was designed to sound like a lullaby. When on long trips people sleep at motels/hotels/camp grounds, so this is the sleeping part of the adventure. The melody reenters at G, and from there out serves as a condensed version of the piece. This packing of all the melodies/sections together was my attempt at a development section. Letter I is the end of the adventure when everyone gets to relax with an amen cadence. The music was designed to be 299 seconds long.
