Composed in 2000.
“The basic tenant which I use when thinking in music is an order of the twelve tones with a diatonic and/or enharmonic back-drop. This is though far removed from the dodecaphonic technique. Thereby a lot remains open, and indeed composing does not mean for me the use of a ready-made musical language which is divorced from the current compositional process. Striving for the first concrete formulations at the beginning of a work, I frequently search for a constructive main idea which is suited to lend continuity and unity in a characteristic way to the composition at hand. Although I try to avoid tried and true artistic techniques, I still aim for music which makes sense, is logical, organic and a unified entity. I consider an experiment as successful when the audience does not recognize it as such.”
