Le Souffle (1994)
for six instruments (flute, clarinet, violin, violoncello, piano and percussion)
For the Chinese, the ‘Yin’ and the ‘Yang’ were in the universe from the beginning and all creatures are animated by the ‘Qi’, the breath of life. Inspired by the order of the 64 hexagrams of the Book of Mutations and their composition in six masculine or feminine symbols, I divided this piece into six registers and wrote the music of the 64 hexagrams consecutively for six musicians.

I chose unusual percussion instruments on purpose because these objects are part of our everyday life, yet their sound is rarely heard in concert halls. Some instruments and tones have symbolic meanings. Because there is no set pitch, rhythmic organization is of the utmost importance.

Regina Irman
Ein Trauermarsch. Nach Texten von Adolf Wölfli (1987)
Based on texts by Adolf Wölfli.
for percussion trio and speaking voice
Texts: Adolf Wölfli
Percussion set-up to include: Three pans, zinc bowl, water ladle, water gong, pedal timpani, Basel drum, military snare, piccolo snare, two wood-felt sets, ten cow bells, two tam tams, Peking opera gong, six cymbals, kazoo, vibraslap. The illogical and anti-perspectivist text, and a few Wölfli-like somisation fragments are formed and set to music in individual strata. These strata are laid one on top of the other in a collage, betraying Wolfli's frequent tendency towards queer folklorism. The timpani are the central and recurrent element throughout. Commissioned by the festival 'Tage für Neue Musik Zürich'.

First performed: 28..8.00 in St.Moritz by the Ensemble Cattrall under the direction of Marc Kissoczy.

A (tenir) tension (2002-2003)
Trio
for flute, marimbaphone, vibraphone and persussion instruments
The completely dissimilar sound generation of flute and percussion, for example with regard to the acquisition and decay times, formed an important compositional aspect while working on this new ouvre.
This dissimilitude, by analogy, is also transferred to the temporal configuration insofar as the rhythmical form of extremely tight motorical passages ("moltoritmico") ranges over diverse intermediate stages to flexible handling parts ("tempo fluido") producing, thereby, tightly packed episodes with highly differentiated timbral play alongside processes where virtuosity in the traditional sense is central. It is so that the trio produces in quick succession various states, which are highly demanding for the interpreters, with regards interaction and playing technique.

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.

Message (1994)
A choreographed music performance
for four percussionists (cymbals)
Four percussionists traverse the rows where the audience sit following a pre-drawn choreographic plan. The crashing of the cymbals behind the head and close to the ears allows the sound to reach directly into the inner body. There develops a kaleidoscope of overlapping pitches which intensify or extinguish each other, interfere or harmonise - the result is an almost ‘private’ sound. The inner and outer, the near and far, the slowly changing sculptural figure from sounding metal is a communication transcending explanation: Message.

Pierre Thoma
Amplitudes (1991)
for one or two percussion instruments
'Amplitudes' is based on a triple concept: 1) The amplitude of bodily movements naturally arising from the score in big or small gestures which evolve in the 3 dimensions. 2) The possibility to be played in two different versions: that is to say with 1 or 2 percussion instruments. 3) The dynamic correlations, where hardly audible sounds can be overlapped by loud tones exactly like whispering can be drowned out by screaming.

Pierre Thoma
Déchirure (Alinnik) (1993)
for flute and two percussion
In the Inuit language the word "Alinnik" means point of no return, irreversibility, break. Greenland's Inuit are a population with an extremely original cosmogony based on the relation between sun and moon. Their view of the world is completely coherent in itself, mediated by shamanism but seems utterly unordered and chaotic from a perspective based on Descartes and western ideology. Some 200 years ago, tradesmen and missionaries set out to cultivate this population, which now has one of the highest suicide rates in the world. A culture - a way of thinking, feeling and acting - in a process of destructuration if not destruction, heading towards a point of no return.

EIS EROTA (2002)
for soprano, baritone, horn, two trumpets, trombone, percussion and strings
Texts: Altgriechisch
Sappho and Alkaios from the isle of Lesbos are amongst the most prestigious representatives of Greek lyrics strongly connected with the Orpheus saga. After the heavenly singer has lost his beloved Eurydice to the underworld and, spurned by his endless mourning, he seeks the love of other women. Bacchante tear him to pieces in an angry rage and cast his head into the sea. The tide washes it onto the shores of Lesbos - here his mouth is once again brought to speech by the lyric of the island.
Mythological notions merge with personal experience and sufferance in connection with the erotic. Eros is the ‘weirdest God’ (Alkaois) whose effect is to rip open the abyss between the highest fulfilment and the degeneration towards death. The elemental force with which he encompasses man awakes in him an orpheic longing for immortality and the desire to overcome the underworld; simultaneously bringing even more painfully the forlornness of his wish to consciousness. While Alkaios attempts to forget in wild drunkenness and sexual indulgence, we eavesdrop on Sappho, and the dark tones of a wish for love in which pain resonates with the transient.
EIS EROTA combines fragments from both poets to produce a dialogue on the subject of love and death.

In this piece two rather contrasting movements are set against each other (chamber musical registration and ‘Pleno’ effects, combine agile percussion and string figuration with long held single notes with chords, strict structures with improvisatory elements, and various blends of organ and orchestral sound).

Der Geist des Tals (2013)
for soprano, trombone, cello, percussion and piano
The Ensemble Eunoia's suggestion that I write a piece dealing with the letter 'U' set off in me a chain of associations relating to this vowel. The starting point was the tonal character of the phoneme U: For me its dark, earthy, warm timbre equated to the symbolic image of the Mother ("uterus", "ursprung" (=origin)...). My text selection combines the following excerpts taken from literature and lore that evoke different aspects of the Mother symbol: In the 3rd hymn of the legendary poet and Dionysus priest Orpheus, night is celebrated as the Mother of gods and men. In the second part of Goethe's "Faust", Mephistopheles describes the nocturnal and sinister descent into the obscure realm of the Mothers ("No way! Into the untrodden ..."), where Faust wants to lead Helena back to life. A mother grieving for her son and creation forms the basis of the liturgical "Stabat Mater". And finally, the text of "Tao te Ching" to the "valley spirit" elevates the image of the Mother as the origin of heaven and earth to the spiritual.

Schnitt-Muster (2002)
for flute, clarinet, piano, percussion and string trio
Sometimes completely different musical types or structural samples are set aside each other in a similar way to the effect achieved while zapping through television channels, sharp cuts which seem at first random are yet intentional. Even the other meaning of ‘cut-sample’, the prefabrication of something based on a template or the stereotypical also receives acknowledgement through the mimicry of musical styles. In this manner various fields of popular music are touched upon - even contemporary music cannot escape.

Schlaglichter (2006)
for oboe, clarinet, bassoon, double bass and percussion
The three miniatures are the reshaping of the structure and instrumentation of three laconic parts of my opera "Die Axt" after "Graf Öderland" by Max Frisch, which I composed as a commission for the Komischen Oper Berlin.
Schlaglicht I is taken from the end of the 2nd act. In Schlaglicht II, the wind instrumentalists play excerpts from the three trumpets in the 1st act, while the percussion and double bass develop a new oppositional layer. Schlaglicht III transposes almost the entire 5th act where the bassoon and oboe intonate the duet between the central character and his partner, while the clarinet and double bass play the accompanying trumpet and tuba and the percussion brings in a new line.

Max E. Keller
accent - figure - layer (2008)
A project between improvisation and composition
for bass clarinet/tenor saxophone, percussion, piano, violin, viola and double bass
The wide scope between improvisation and composition is calibrated. There are, however, no long notated passages but form sequences, short notated phrases as starting points, verbal instructions and graphics - right through to improvisation as one extreme. The musical material is based on the archetypal elements 'accent', 'figure' and 'layer' as mentioned in the title. The through-composed parts "unione e tremolo" for violin and viola (movement II) and the violin solo "NONONONO" (movement VII) are inserted between the six movements as the other extreme.

Max E. Keller
Wendepunkte (2009)
for piano, percussion and string quartet
For advanced amatuers.
This piece was composed for the music Matura. The education of young people is the same for all until the Matura stage. Here, at the first major turning point in their lives, individuals must decide which direction they wish to take. Thus the 'turning point' became one fundamental concept behind this work, walking together and walking alone became another. They are processed on various levels - both on the quasi-motif and the formal.

Max E. Keller
ich, du, wir (2010)
for flute, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, violoncello
Composed for the 25th anniversary of the 'ensemble für neue musik zürich', this short piece attempts to trace the path to togetherness (ensemble), from I to we. A unity is drawn twice from a dense fabric of independent lines, initially on a trill surface and then in unison at the end.

Max E. Keller
Gravuren (2010)
for string quartet and percussion
This composition is based on a process or a figurative concept: one or several lines are engraved into a surface, derived from the opposing string surface and percussion line. Surfaces and lines exist in the most varied of forms, colours, intensities and mutations thereof, and the contrast traverses various grades and forms. By utilising three cardboard boxes, the percussion section is also able to play flat rubbing noises that create an approximation of everyday sounds. The spectrum expands at various points throughout the work when totally different elements are suddenly introduced.
