The word "Boids" refers to bird-like objects (bird-oids), representing the beauty of their movements in a flock which is a result of balancing out with each other, following the principle of least effort. I wonder if these rules can be applied to the way a string quartet is shaped. "Boids again" has been written as a sequel to the piece "Boids" (2017), a 4 minute study for string quartet in the frame of the Kronos Quartet's educational project "50 for the Future."
