aPhasis (2002)

Instrumentation: for soprano, alto flute, bass clarinet

Texts: Rob Holloway

The title stems from the Greek words "Aphasia" and "Apheresis". The original meaning of Aphasia is "speechlessness", this is often translated into English as "loss of language". The leaving out of a vowel or syllable at the beginning of a word, either for causes pertaining to language history or because of metric or articulation reasons, is referred to as "Apheresis".
The dealing of language in aPhasis reflects these processes with the explosive, blurting out of word clusters, which are deconstructed as the piece progresses. This process is musically embedded by the voice in a sharply contrasting sound image comprising wordless, archaic sounding 'vocalese' passages, which are hummed or interpreted with a half-open mouth. The accompanying instruments - written here in a new version for bass clarinet and violoncello - negotiate the tonal space between these two dynamics.
The libretto comes from the pen of British poet Rob Holloway.

This piece, without text, was written for the altus Luiz Alves da Silva. It works primarily with oscillating, non transition forming elements such as register change, upbow - downbow, to and fro movements etc. Continually changing parameters such as dynamics and tempo transitions are to be avoided in so far as they are not induced by the instrument or the human being itself.

Im innersten Winter (requiem) (1999)

Instrumentation: for orator, bass clarinet and guitar

Texts: Andreas Neeser

Composed during the 'Last Minute. Eine Ausstellung zu Sterben und Tod' exhibition at the Stapferhause in Lenzburg, this piece touches on eight poems by Andreas Neeser (*1964), an author from Aarau. Published by pendo-Verlag, his 'Triebholz' collection of poems deals with the death of his brother. The texts reflect personal experiences with respect to coping with dying, death and transiency. Formally, this piece is based on the multi-part structure of the traditional Requiem text, which leads to a sort of mini-cycle consisting of short, merging single movements, where each section makes musical reference to the poems' structures, characteristics and emotional levels.

again, sam! (1998)

Instrumentation: 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.

Ergon 12

Instrumentation: for flute and bass clarinet

External time levels (as has been described by Stephen Hawking, with linear time comes an additional vertical imaginary time base out of which there exists a dependent area with no oppositional beginning and end and which is conceived as instantaneous) stands in relation to the piece's inner nature, its complex dramatic time organisation, which amongst other things is one of its products, and in which, for both players, time is not continuous - often with different tempi having to be played simultaneously. An expression of incompatible contradiction, so-called antimony, reminiscent of Kant's 'Transcendental Dialectic'.

Through the elongation of time in the deeper and darker register, the music (or rather the perceiving ear) nestles in an intermediate area between process and static, as if observed through a magnifying glass. From the abundance of innumerable possibilities emerges the presence of a singular transition.

Gran Partita (2011)

Instrumentation: for wind septet (fl, ob, cl, bh, bcl, bn, hn)

"The seagull continues to play. But she is no longer alone. They came one after the other, against the wind. A bassoon is here, a long, thin lament; an oboe, guttural; a horn, horns, various colours, dry in the brass; a deep voice, a sonorous bass draws long, thick threads through the sound carpet. Above me on the craggy ledge sit thirteen seagulls, each with a tone of its own. Highs and lows, warmth and coolness, a mystical choir, a serenade from within the wind."
The number of seagulls in this excerpt from a short story by the Swiss author Andreas Neeser makes reference to the number of instruments in Mozart's famous wind serenade 'Gran Partitia', which also lends its name to Neeser's short story. Published in a volume of stories entitled 'Unsicherer Grund' or 'Unsafe Ground' (Haymon, 2010), Neeser's 'Gran Partita' pays homage to nature and the legends of Bretagne: An observation made at the westernmost side of Bretagne and a metaphor within which man and his emotions are mirrored.
Commissioned by the Bläsersolisten Aargau, my 'Gran Partita' reflects the music in Neeser's text and the nature it evokes - the structural elements of the short story and also the geology and fauna of Bretagne. The instrument's scales symbolise granite, the predominant stone in this area, and the vegetation and topos of the sea and the call of the seagulls. Non-musical parameters define the musical material, the form of which offers absolute priority to the melodic line. This leads to an autonomous sound metaphor comprising lines and colours, that makes the underlying substance as an explanation no longer necessary.

Eric Gaudibert
2'35" (2007)

Instrumentation: for bassoon solo, bass flute, bass clarinet and trumpet

This piece was composed for the 30th anniversary of the ensemble Contrechamps. The title corresponds to the timing which Bartók set for his Allgero Barbaro. The trio (flute, clarinet, trumpet) play some extracts of this work with breathing sounds only, while the solo bassoon "sings" the beginning of the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, also by Bartók.
It is possible to use other wind instruments then the ones chosen here.

accent - figure - layer (2008)
A project between improvisation and composition

Instrumentation: 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.

mit Pfiff (2012)

Instrumentation: 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)

Instrumentation: 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.

con forza e con tenerezza (2017)

Instrumentation: Bassklarinette in B und Baritonsaxophon in Es

Sehr schnelle, sehr laute Tonrepetitionen beider Instrumente auf dem gleichen Ton - so beginnt das kurze Werk: con forza. Dieses Startmodell wird gleich zu Beginn variiert, indem das Tempo verändert wird. Danach entfernt sich das Saxophon mit Laufbewegungen vom gemeinsamen Ton, kehrt aber wieder zurück. Unerwartet werden diese Variationen durch einen zarten, leisen Ton gestoppt: tenerezza.

Ins Freie (2017)

Instrumentation: Improvisationskonzept für Bassklarinette, Marimba oder Vibraphon & Schlagzeug ad libitum, Klavier, Violine, Viola und Violoncello

In den 68er-Jahren wurde in der Neuen Musik oft mit einem politischen Hintergrund improvisiert, quasi als antiautoritäre Praxis. Die Konzepte wollten nicht vorschreiben, was zu spielen sei, sondern zur Kreativität anregen. "Ins Freie" knüpft an meine langjährige Beschäftigung mit Improvisation an, ist aber nicht - wie viele Konzepte - für den Eigengebrauch im "inner circle" geschrieben, sondern versucht, allgemein gängige Wege "ins Freie" zu entwerfen.

geerdet, geritten, geflogen (2018)

Instrumentation: Bassklarinette in B

Die tiefen Töne der Bassklarinette haben einen erdigen Klang durch ihre spezielle Klangfarbe. Sehr lange und tiefe, teils stehende, teils sich wandelnde Töne sind ein Ausgangs- und Bezugspunkt der Tonreise. Sie führt kontrastierend und sprunghaft in grosse Höhen und in schnelle Bewegungen, kehrt aber immer wieder in die archaischen, erdhaften Tiefen zurück, in Ruhephasen, wo Kräfte sich sammeln für erneute Ausflüge in höhere und teils wild bewegte Sphären.
