Next Stop was originally conceived as a Cincinnati-specific public sound art piece that eventually would be installed at different locations along the Cincinnati Streetcar route. Both Tyler Niemeyer and I wrote short string quartet movements based on both the location of the streetcar stops and little musical tidbits from the The Goossens Fanfares (commissioned during the 1942–43 Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra season). The locations of the streetcar stops include Government Square, Fountain Square, Contemporary Arts Center, Public Library, Aronoff Center, Horseshoe Casino, Gateway Quarter, School for the Creative and Performing Arts, Music Hall, and Washington Park.
Since these string quartet movements were created independently, they can be performed separately or together and in any order. For this publication, they are listed in the order of the streetcar stops.
