Juan Manuel Chávez
Estudio en dos Dimensiones (1989)
for violoncello solo
The basic idea of this piece is to position opposing musical elements side by side, allowing them to be interpreted as contrasting (e.g. tone - noise, cycle - anti-cycle, homophony - polyphony etc…) These various dimensions and their relationship to each other are continuously redefined in the five parts of this piece. It is important however, that each plays a leading roll in one of the parts.

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.

Cécile Marti
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.

The piece works, from a musical point of view, with different levels of understanding i.e. repression and forgetting.
World premier: 22.05.02 in Basel by the aequator ensemble.

Felix Baumann
anhaltend (2001-2002)
for two violincelli
Music based on the duo op. 54, Lettre F 2e livre by Jacques Offenbach.
First performed in St Gallen, 8th April, 2002 by Martina Schucan and Imke Frank. 'Anhaltend' can be played independently or as the third movement of the duo op. 54, Lettre F 2e livre von Jacques Offenbach, whereby the original third movement is replaced or played as the fourth. Music sounds exactly there where we least expect it and always different to how we expect it.

Exils, M. 484 (1994-1997)

Andreas Stahl
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.

De-Qing Wen
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.

Gedankenflucht (1995)
Ergon 22
for violoncello and piano
'Flight of thought' is a term used in psychiatry and means a mad, neurotic drifting of thoughts. The procedure of the slowed intuitive improvisation which declines all planable construction (like the crisis of analytical rationality), should lead to the formal categories of order dissolving into a flow and allow space for a new audio-experience.

In this piece I am mainly interested in the different energy forms, primarily potential energy and kinetic energy: What is the nature of the positional condition and the positional orientation, resp. energy density and energy transformation capabilities which charge a potential energy and set a process in motion.

Entropia (1997-1998)
Ergon 24
for violoncello solo
'Entropie' (ital. entropia) Is the measure of increasing disorder in a closed system. Entropy increases in any natural concurrent process. Interesting from a compositional point of view is the autodynamic process of the disorganisation of a strict order to growing "disorder", almost immediately creating new legalities of modes of action in the context. The composer becomes the observer of the drift in the piled up energies inherent to the material.

weniger und mehr (1996-2013)
for violoncello, accordion and piano
The title 'weniger and mehr' (less and more) describes a principle that defines individual processes. The work begins with a series of vigorous accordion decresecendi that become ever shorter (LESS in volume and duration) and separated by ever increasing (MORE) intervals. A rhythm, the cells of which appear throughout the whole piece, is formed simultaneously within these sounds: less in sound means more in rhythm. How and to what degree is a dialogue between the instruments possible? - This question is a further aspect expressed in, among other things, the exploration of opposing extremes of register or, contrariwise, unisono, or in attempting to bridge distances.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"Fünf Improvisationsmodelle für Jugendliche" sowie "In Regen, Blitz und Donner" (2008)
for youths with any instruments (including everyday objects and carnival market instruments) + 2 saxophones and violoncello
The improvisational models "Kartenspiel", "Zündschnur", "Sonntagnachmittag", "Wasserfall" and "Gewitter" are first and foremost to be understood as individual concepts. Duration and instrumentation remain open. The pieces can be realised using normal instruments or everyday objects (plastic bags, paper, pan lids, table tops, pieces of wood, pieces of metal, cutlery, crockery etc.). "Wasserfall" and "Kartenspiel" are possible exceptions as the graphics require pitch and pitch modulation, but even this can be realised using carnival market instruments, lotus flutes or the voice as well as conventional instruments. "Gewitter" can also be the framework of a whole form: One of the other concepts can be played during a stop under a balcony etc..
"In Regen, Blitz und Donner" is ultimately a through-composed version of the preceding possibility where three further instruments are added.

Trio fluido (2009)
for violin, violoncello and piano
Here we have three different elements that flow (a word used in its broadest sense): sustained sounds, wide-reaching melodies and an often repeated phrase from Swiss folk music. These elements are not only varied extensively, but also superimposed. Every so often, short and sometimes very strong opposing figures appear, occasionally cristalising out of the flow. Such opposing figures also form the finish, which leads into another world.

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.

Où est le roi? (2010)
for flute, violin, violoncello and organ
1747: King Friedrich II challenged J.S. Bach to create a 3-part fugue over his own fugue theme, which resulted in 'The Musical Offering'.
2010: The Schweizer Kammerensemble challenged five very different composers to work with the same fugue theme. I transformed it with a contemporary edge into a theme consisting of 2 x 12 different tones - in the sense of 12-tone music but with a slight irregularity. The relation to Bach is initially almost imperceptible, a connection can only be drawn from the rhythm and the fluctuation in colour of the noise-like string sounds. The theme undergoes the normal transformations until it finally emerges in quasi purity.

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.

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.

Ruh' (2011/12)
for soprano and violoncello (or soprano and baritone)
Texts: Max E. Keller
As with many of my compositions, Ruh' (calmness) is based on a richly varied yet simple and easy-to-follow model. Soprano and violoncello continuously find calmness on a quiet unisono, an octave or double octave paraphrased on tonal, rhythmical or sound colour levels. This is followed by a "solo" or "a due" break out into turbulent fields - sometimes also indicated in the lyrics - and the return to a resting tone. Almost like in real life.

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.

Cécile Marti
hidden (2011)
Duo
for violin and cello
This piece was commissioned by Gare du Nord Basel. The commission was to write a musical 'work commentary' on Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow's Scheherazade.
The piece focusses on the two protagonists from the 1001 Nights saga, namely the Scheherazade and the Sultan Scharyar, which Korsakow mirrors with two main themes. The duo follow these themes with the minutest intervals. A duality gradually develops from a supposed unity without actually ever leaving the combined sound corporeality.
