descriptions, reviews, &c.

"As the title suggests, the piece consists of three parts. A so-called large form is contained in each of these parts. These each consist of 39 tracks and are played on dead wood, a drum or 39 pine cones. The note values, the corresponding rests and the tempi are rolled. In some cases, the duration of the individual sequences is determined using the dice according to a strict concept. In addition to the sound sources mentioned, stones, water, footsteps, church bells, etc. also appear on this production. These tonal events sometimes occur 3 or 9 times. With this game I wanted to overcome or question my musical habits and certain formal aspects."-Christian Wolfarth
