descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Events in five parts can be heard as one piece in five parts. It opens with floten, for solo flute . Tracks 2, 4 and 5 are combining floten (1998), stein reiben (2008) for stone harp and hauchen (2016) for trumpet (three solo pieces from the event series) into 3 possible versions of events no. 2 and events mo. 3. In the middle (center) section of the piece stands variable densities in space for 8 bass drums and 2 trumpets. The eight bass drums are spatially divided and all play the same slow beat, though never all of them at the same time, letting the sound wander through the space. Sometimes only one drum sounds, sometimes a few of them together. In the latter case one can hear low frequency beatings. The 2 trumpets, one to the left, one to the very right, are playing a very slow pulse with noisy sounds, independent and dissociated from the beat of the drums. "events #2 flute and stone harp" in this version of events #2 the two solo pieces floten, for flute, and stein reiben, for stone harp are superimposed in various ways."-Wandleweiser
