"Klänge streifen, Rhythmen streifen, Melodien streifen, Streifen schichten, Streifen verweben,

Two string instruments stand face on with two percussion instruments whereby the "percussion's" primary objective is to attempt tonal alignment with the strings. The vibraphone plays a coupling role between the two parties. Polar oscillating movements, stratifying and sometimes recolouring, flowing sound bands and flitting pulsations alternate throughout the piece.

Oktogon (2008)
for string quartet and horn quartet
Four horns stand face on with a string quartet. These two close and self-contained sounding groups are led into a kind of duet. It begins with the construction of two sounds before developing into a back and forth oscillation between the two sounding groups. There follows a mutual attempt at tonal alignment and then fine variations where the groups enter an area of wavering tones. Re-colouring moments of the horizontal figurations or a hocket-like interplay between the two parties arises. The themetization of the instrument-specific base elements, the fifths tuning of the strings and the natural spectrum of the horn become the harmonic culture medium for the whole piece.

5 Notturni (2003-2004)
for viola solo
- Notturno I "Aria"
My aria material comes from an Italian lullaby, which is actually quoted in this piece. The title "Aria" is also meant literally (aria = air) as the song alternates between being "breathed" and being played on the strings.
- Notturno II "Siciliano"
A play with the rhythmns of the Baroque dance bearing the same title. Each one is danced from top to bottom.
- Notturno III "Labyrinth Musick"
The violin strides through a tonal labyrinth of 3 intervals and 5 durations. It finally finds its way out - via the octaves.
- Notturno IV "Heaven and Hell"
A high (heaven) and a low (hell) sound landscape slowly merges. The begining and the end of the piece, however, is played on the earth.
- Notturno V "When the Shantyboy comes down"
Zapping through 18 radio stations (all played by the viola) searching for the song which lends its name to the title of this piece. Shortly before the end the composer believes he has found the right station - or is he mistaken?

Michael Schneider
Shark Turtle Ray (1998-1999)
for oboe, viola and guitar
I was spending a year in Sydney when I recieved an offer by Mid-German Radio (MDR) to write a piece after Paul Klee for the 1999 MDR Summer. Being surrounded by such unique flora and fauna reminded me of the strong affinity to life on and in water expressed in the paintings of Paul Klee, his numerous harbour scenes, and above all his fish pictures. What would Paul Klee have painted on a visit to the 5th Continent? "Shark", "Turtle", "Ray" are three such imaginary images, Australian scenes after Paul Klee and inspired by Klee's own related motives. Each of the three movements begins with a core instrument and a specific musical material. The multiple oboe tones in "Shark", the guitar's natural flageolet tones in "Turtle" and the viola's tight chord glissandi in "Ray" initiates the character and development of each respective movement.

Michael Schneider
Es werde Licht (2000)
for viola solo
"Es werde Licht", after a photograph by Silvia Kamm, relates to the situation immediately before (and during) a concert: From tuning the strings, the soloist is catapulted into the musical stream and simultaneously 'explores' the instrument in a quasi '3-dimensional' manner (longitudinal: chords; latitudinal: glissandi; vertical: pizzicato). A theatrical gesture throughout the performance is desirable. Like the photograph of Silvia Kamm, with the lit note stands in an empty, darkened room, the title of the piece symbolises this polarity (pre concert/during concert). With the piece's increasing 'internalisation', an additional content-related level picks up on the aspect of light. The frequency of the individual tones found in the melodic gestures of the final part are taken directly from the wavelengths of visible light (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet).

Silk Bamboo (2001)
for flute and string quartet
This piece is inspired by ‘Sizhu’ (silk and bamboo). ‘Sizhu’ is a traditional Chinese musical form used popularly in Central-East and Southern China. The silk bamboo ensemble consists of "soft" instruments with si silk strings (pipa, erhu, zheng) and zhu bamboo instruments (bamboo flutes, dizi). In this work the composer tries to integrate the ideas of traditional Chinese music with modern Western composition techniques. The silk is soft - ‘Yin’ (feminine): pianissimo and lento. The bamboo is hard - ‘Yang’ (masculine): fortissimo and allegro. Although the instruments, the musicians, the way of composing and time have all been transformed the spirit of the music and the Chinese emphasis of the musical language remains unchanged.

Sound Gone to The Heaven (2009)
for viola solo and six violas
This piece is dedicated to my beloved elder uncle.
My elder uncle had been offering the five children in my family with parental care and financial help since my father died early when I was young. Now he has gone to the heaven but his figure seems even greater and clearer just as sound is while rising high up the earth, revealed by the Buddha.
In this piece, harmonic series sequence based on the note of C serves as a symbol of death and heaven, and subharmonicity series sequence based on the note of E as a symbol of life and the earth. Interpolation is also used to make additions, blending and transition. Added to this, the spectrum music technique and the music-making software Open Music help me discover a fresh way to express my emotions.

The pianoforte part is either in a free style, concert-like or very rhythmic and demands an advanced level of play. The quartet is written in traditional notation. The piano which was used for the world premiere was a copy of an instrument of 1815.

Au delà (2005)

The fourth string of the viola is lowered to G (one octave lower than the third string). The fourth string of the violoncello is lowered a minor third to A. Accessory: a bow for the flutist. At the end of the work the violist and the flutist both play on the strings of the violoncello. A discreet quotation appears in the middle of this trio: the beginning of the 'Gesänge der Frühe', op. 133 by Robert Schumann.

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.

Images japonaises (2005)
for horn and string quartet
This work quotes a Haiku recited once by the hornist. It is inspired by the acidic sounds of Gagaku (music of the imperial court of Japan) and by the tense melismas of Nô. The string quartet's tempo is generally independent of the horn's. The five instrumentalist need to have a good command of micro intervals. The particular timbre of the quartet derives from researching the "fake" unisons.

Ernst Pfiffner
Trio sine nomine (1992)
for flute, viola and harp
The title alludes deliberately to the custom of the 16th century, without revealing its associated theme.... The composer took another impulse from the tradition: the use of the modal method, particularly in view of one of the harp's peculiarities.

nel pomeriggio (2006)
for baritone saxophone and string quartet
A comfortable afternoon in a dusty café: as in times past, a string quartet plays a waltz that nobody listens to, a never-ending, continuously repetitive violin melody and an almost imperceptibly shifting accompaniment. Added to this is a completely inappropriate baritone saxophone - sometimes blending in, sometimes detached and sometimes obstinately defiant. Suddenly a bang! And everything collapses into shadowy ruins.

Eingriffe (2006)
for flute, clarinet, piano, violin, viola and violoncello
The initial material consists of two melodies and two rhythmical sequences; these can be varied causing their superposition's to result in a countless number of related musical forms. The recurring formal idea is the "undampered clew": a dense, wide mesh that thins out then squeezes itself into the centre of the sound space. In this clear, goal-orientated process, diversity is encroached upon: three instruments temporarily break out of the process, colourful accents engage with the continuous mezzo forte, the process stops momentarily, the residual viola tips over into the realms of noise etc.

12-06-07 (2007)
for soprano, oboe, alto saxophone, horn and viola
A text about statistically the most frequent causes of death in Switzerland takes its course and is interspersed by ten extremely varied newsflashes from real life, all of them objets trouvés from two daily newspaper of 12th June, 2007. The statistical information is set to music in a recitative manner with very few, primarily sustained notes. This is in contrast to the ten newsflashes whose music is composed with lively movements and a tangible pulse in various structures. The somewhat macabre text montage reflects the apparent phenomenon of the sometimes-grotesque contrast of various themes and texts, which seems to magically attract humans.

concertare e improvvisare (2007)
for flute, oboe, clarinet (bcl), violin, viola, violoncello and improvising piano
This work contrasts notated music with improvised music. The sextet is extensively notated; the piano merely has several verbal suggestions. There are, however, also moments of improvisation in the sextet where, for example, each instrument initially and independently of the others repeats a phrase, which gradually changes following verbal instructions. Each begins this process with great intensity, playing as loud and as quickly as possible – very much in the style of early free jazz.

Wie Kraut und Rüben (2008)
After the picture bearing the same title by Paul Klee
for oboe, bassoon, guitar and viola
In the painting "Wie Kraut und Rüben" by Paul Klee transparent white dots are spread over a red background in irregular rows and create thereby a subtle pulsation within a regular grid. By painting over the dots with the brush, these dots turn into lines, spots and signs. This technique, which Klee called "pointillate", has been transposed to dots of sound, arranged in rows, superimposed in irregular, free rhythms by the four instruments.

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.

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.

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.

mit Pfiff (2012)
for flute, bass clarinet, piano, violin, viola and violoncello
The leitmotif of this piece is indeed, as the title suggests (Pfiff = whistle), an instrumental whistle by the whole ensemble, which is followed in each case by a kind of echo - be it hard and loud accents or soft chords.
(Trans.: mit Piff also translates as 'with flair' or 'with zing').
Dedicated to the Ensemble Theater am Gleis Winterthur for it's 20th anniversary.

Keim - con sorpresa (2013)
for flute clarinet (bcl), piano, violin, viola, violoncello
This work develops from a simple kernel on the one hand, and displays surprising aspects on the other. And so the kernel grows exuberantly, quasi-uncontrolled, in unpredictable directions, notes remain surprising - like mistakes - enduring to form a surface of contrasts. Suggestions expand into preludes, after beats into codas; the surfaces become noise-like. These surfaces dominate from the middle part onwards, and the kernal fragments and repeats, simultaneously rising up as a pulse. In addition to the little surprises, four structures are spliced in, none of which have anything to do with the kernel: sorpresa.
