Idiorhythmische Studie (1993)
Installation
(wooden chair, electronic)
The ‘Idiorhythmische Studie’ is a solitary search for rhythms produced by ones own body while sitting upon a stool. When one (the audience) sits upon a wooden stool and, while wearing the headphones, moves slowly one begins to perceive ones own positional changes. The study is a closed system in which each individual visiting the installation is the interpreter and listener of their own concert. A study of oneself.

The Tender Language of Wu (2011)
for guqin, pre-recorded tape and string quartet
Commissioned by the Guqin player Ms. Dai Xiaolian, I composed "The Tender Language of Wu" for guqin, pre-recorded tape and string quartet. The tape recording was completed with the help from Suzhou native students Li Mingyue, Zhou Heqing, Lu Wenyi and Gu Yunyu from the Musicology Department of Shanghai Conservatory of Music and Zhang Shichao from the Composition Department of the same school.

Suzhou dialect is often considered to be soft, light, and flowing, therefore given a good name Wu nong ruan yu , which literally means "The Tender Language of Wu". Guqin and western string instruments are both characteristic of gentleness and elegance. I had intended to create a dialogue between these different factors by integrating the ancient Chinese and western string instruments with the tender language of Wu and modern digital audio technology.

Selbstgespräche (2006)
for piano and live electronics
These days, a machine is increasingly the conversational partner of humans and so it is in "Selbstgespräche". A small digital apparatus is positioned directly onto the piano and is operated predominantly by the pianist using two foot pedals. The apparatus changes, morphs or repeats that which is played by the pianist, who in turn reintervenes in this transformed sound.

hasten und warten (2008)
for violin and live electronics
The volatile and varying movements of everyday life, a little like the "stop and go" of traffic, provides the basic feeling of tempo for modern times. Irregular rhythms in music are a reflection of this. In "Hasten und Warten", this is taken as the model for the form. The change between stop and go is regular, however, the duration of each section is irregular, ranging from 1 second to 83 seconds. The violin and electronics do not always ride parallel but also in opposition: the violin remains static and the electronics give the impulse or vice versa. The movement contrast does not appear thus in succession but also contrapuntal in simultaneity.

Dialogues (2008)
for guitar and live electronics
Both partners are handled equally. The electronics do not only remain passive but also take the initiative. Sometimes the guitar remains on a percussive sample and the electronics answer with increasingly hectic movements, at other times both partners move with varying pulse, as though on two levels, at other times still the guitar gives the impulse, occasionally there is an intensive improvised interaction with rapid and spontaneous role changes.
