Four Songs for Emily (2012)
for soprano, 2 flutes, clarinet, saxophone, accordion and hackbrett
Text: Emily Dickinson
This short cycle for soprano and six instruments sets to music four poems by the American author Emily Dickinson. They deal with life, death and nature, which are recurrent themes in her poetry.
Through the four songs one can see a progress from antiphony to heterophony via polyphony. Firstly separated from the instruments, the voice intermingles more and more with them; they finally seem to merge into one single instrument. Additionally, the text stretches increasingly from a quasi-syllabic to a highly ornamented use. Thus the less understandable it becomes, the deeper one penetrates into the sound and its contemplation.

Jeux (hi-lo-hi-mute) (2015)
for accordion and percussion
The idea of game in music has always fascinated me. You can find it in throughout the ages – from Machaut and Mozart to Debussy and Kurtag – and especially in baroque music with its countless contrapuntal inventions, its motivic development or its ornamentation... It is full of expression, bliss, spirit and game!
In my Jeux for accordion and percussion, I try to recover those characteristics in my own language. Instead of playing with tonality, harmony and counterpoint, I use sound, space, shapes and colors to create a mosaic where the two instruments often form one single entity, sometimes are more independent but always complement.
