erinnern - an sich (2001)
for female voice, flute, oboe, violin, violoncello and piano
Written for the ensemble ‘pre-art’ for the 1700 anniversary of the Christianisation of Armenia. Text (mostly spoken) and music refer to the processes of memory and remembrance (resp. forgetting).

Jacques Demierre
La colonne brisée - Frida Kahlo (1996)
for voice solo
Texts: Subcommandante Marcos, Frida Kahlo
A female voice appears alone on stage. It speaks of the journey from the personal to the universal, a journey brimming with sense and dramatic tension, a journey which connects the singularity of the body with the multitude of the myth in dependance of the humanity of a mysticised being - simply our world.
