Translations from architecture play an ever-increasing role in the compositions of Hans-Jürg Meier. On the one hand side the power of imagination is of fundamental importance in both arts. On the other both address the holistic invention of forms that develop in time and/or space. His compositions are bound in the coaction of nature, form and beauty in an attempt to provide a quasi-tangible experience of the sensible qualities of the musical material (tones, intervals, sound texture)."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"In Hans-Jurg Meier's music, translations from architecture have become increasingly meaningful. On the one hand, in both art forms, the power of imagination is of fundamental importance. On the other, both work with holistic formal inventions that unfold in time or/and in space. Endeavoring to make physically tangible the sensual qualities of the musical material (tones, intervals, texture), his composi- tions are committed to exploring the interaction of nature, form and beauty."-Edition Wandelweiser
