Mathias Steinauer
* . *, op. 1.1 (1984)

Cécile Marti
Im Würfel (2005)
for sextet (fl, cl, vn, vc, mar, pf)
"My form is created entirely out of straight lines and flat surfaces ordered at symmetrical right-angles. Every side, every line is the same as every other. Intersection facing intersection. This is me at peace with myself. I can begin rotating at the slightest movement, yet it is not always possible to forsee my path of motion, for the possibility of changing direction at any moment I leave open. My way is found along my edges or my corners. If I am not resting on a surface then I am moving in this linear fashion."
A square's eye view - its inherent form is the lead for musical transformation.
The ensemble follows characteristic figurations as a compact motional unit. The way leads from a description of the object through to the mechanisms of its motion and on to playfully gestural formulations.
Circular motions, rotation around a fixed axis, gradual advancement over sound layers, using pulses to create structure, fragmentary phases and moments of dancy movement are but a few aspects which infuse throughout this piece.

Marc-André Rappaz
Haïku (1997)
Poem
for marimba solo
Based on a haïku by Shiki Masaoka (1867-1902): "The storm / During mid-day / has broken the mallow stalk." and a haïku by Kyoshi Takahama (1854-1959): "A serpent escaped. / Its eyes which were watching me / remained alone in the grass." This piece is built in the classical structure of the haiku. Alternating between rubbing of the bars, gliding of the mallets in the tube and slow / very fast movements. The poems are spoken in Japanese by the marimba player.

Dieter Ammann
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.

Vier Duette (2009)
for marimbaphone and guitar
Each of the four duets originates in a basic constellation of musical dialogue, which develops in the interplay between the two instruments. The marimba-guitar combination offers a myriad of colour and expressive shades, which are not possible with each instrument alone.
Vier Duette is dedicated to the duo Christina Schorn and Ivan Mancinelli.
