Tracing the characters in sand. Dismantled word sounds emerge and disappear - only guessing remains. The text particles are in strict rhythmic notation and are spoken as "speechsound", only at the end is the voice recognised as a singing voice.

Various positions or points of origin lead to different perceptions, to different truths about an object or event. Minimally displaced observation points lead to a drifting apart and drifting together of individual lines, to individual stickings on a single tone or form of articulation.

Kreisen (2014)

Instrumentation: Flöte, Klarinette, Oboe, Violine Violoncello, Cembalo

Im Zentrum der Komposition steht die sog. kreisende Bewegung, welche aus Überlagerungen von rhythmischen und melodischen Sequenzen fortwährend neue Konstellationen generiert. Mehrfach entwinden sich freie, improvisatorische Formen dieser strengen Architektur. Sie findet ihren Höhepunkt in einer dichten, vierfachen Überlagerung von zwei Duos und zwei Soli, die sich abbauen und schliesslich auf einem gemeinsamen Akkord enden.
