... questa ... condanna (1991)
for male choir (min. sixteen singers)
Texts: Roberto Succo
The condemnation to life with all its difficult to digest contradictions is the topic of Roberto Succos poems and the basis of this piece. Its coordination without a conductor and its demand for the highest and deepest tones and plucky soli parts make it a demanding piece for the choir. Dedicated to the Zurich Gay Male Choir and supported by the SME Lucerne.

The other version is played in any combination on any twelve stones, slabs, pipes, bricks etc. With each performance of a series, one of the stones is destroyed, in this way a variety of interpretations is achieved.

just different (1994-1995)
for two identical saxophones (a, t or bar)
The sounds and differences in articulation result from the use of different mouthpieces or reeds. Through the further use of a variety of playing techniques (tooth tone, high register, ff in the low register, different slaps etc.) they become the central focus of the piece itself.

Manuscript
rufen wir charon? - und wenn er nicht kommt? (1997-1998)
for altus, bass clarinet, double-bass and piano
This piece, without text, was written for the altus Luiz Alves da Silva. It works primarily with oscillating, non transition forming elements such as register change, upbow - downbow, to and fro movements etc. Continually changing parameters such as dynamics and tempo transitions are to be avoided in so far as they are not induced by the instrument or the human being itself.

again, sam! (1998)
for violoncello, double-bass, baritone saxophone, bass clarinet, two tenor-bass trombones and two percussion
An initial piece based on repetition in such a way that the repeated elements, located on many different levels, are not always immediately recognizable. This gives the impression of a loosely fabricated form. It is sonorously very soft, with lots of sounds and lots of interlocking rhythms. Requires a conductor.

126 pbm (1998-1999)
for violin and piano, with or without amplification
This open-form piece (with three piano and twenty eight violin parts) in techno-tempo, can be assembled in accordance with the performers own preference for bodily movement. Because all the violin parts must not necessarily be played it can, to a certain extent, be adapted to the performers technical skills. In opposition to music in the disco, upon which it is based, the non-amplified version is almost inaudible. This work takes as its central theme time related categories such as duration, pulse, metre, rhythm, continually questioning and changing them.

gebunden. an anima und dich (2000-2001)

Not only the musicians are connected in a very tight, quasi-breathless time structure and intimately interwoven quartet movement, but also the musical form, which, with its ever-changing background also looses its unique identity.
For the ‘Aleph Guitar Quartet’.

erinnern - an sich (2001)
for female voice, flute, oboe, violin, violoncello and piano
Written for the ensemble ‘pre-art’ for the 1700 anniversary of the Christianisation of Armenia. Text (mostly spoken) and music refer to the processes of memory and remembrance (resp. forgetting). Formally it is a triple duet (fl/vn, ob/vc, voc/pno) and is, as usual, situated on the rather extreme sector of sound production.
