The Dream of Daedalus is a vision of the inventor of momentous creations such as flying machines or the labyrinth. We hear amorphous material confronted by predictable structures in several sequences. An extremely differentiated handling of sound.

for wind quintet (horn, 2 trumpets, trombone, tuba) and organ
sFr. 29.00
(Stimmen: sFr. 18.-; € 14.-)
Short three or four tone phrases of equidistant intervals are combined in such a way as to form sound structures similar to those found in tonal music. This piece uses a radically reduced amount of material in ever-changing combinations to create prismatic radiations. The sound structures are relics, nothing but colour values - no longer bound by gravity to a base tone (as in tonal music), but produced through a constructive law. This is also the case with the E major chord, which brings this piece to a 'concilitory' end.

sFr. 26.00
An obsessive, pulsating sequence is stopped down again and again and shortened whenever some sound fields establish themselves in the interstitial. A new multifaceted music replaces the worn down rhythm.

for clarinet (bcl), trombone, violoncello and piano
sFr. 18.00
This work is based on the interactions of the instruments in such a manner that the very close combination of twos (twins) are at the centre and with which one, two or no ‘free’ instruments can consort. The musical process is born of a dialectic between the above mentioned network and its realisation through three almost archetypal musical base models.

26134 Max E. Keller: Grillen (2009) 6'
for trumpet 1 in B, trumpet 2 in B, horn (F), trombone and tuba
sFr. 26.00
The chirping of crickets is generally considered to be soft and quiet, it can, however, become truly clamorous when when many crickets are heard at close quarters - just as one can experience it in the copses or groves of Greece. What is apparently weak can, en mass and under specific circumstances, develop unimagined power. In German the word for cricket is 'Grillen' and carries with it another maeaning: fantastical or dull thoughts.

26159 Max E. Keller: Wiederkehr und Veränderung (2013) 11'
for soprano saxophone, trombone and accordion
sFr. 26.00
Wiederkehr (repetition) and Veränderung (variation) are archetypes of music, and perhaps even of life itself. A series of four basic structures are repeated four times, whereby the duration each time varies enormously, as does the characteristic of each of the basic models. Two of the four basic structures touch on repetition in their internal anatomy. The third basic structure is puzzle-like in its construction, whereby all three instruments repeat the same six elements several times and overlap. On another level, breathing/blowing - an existential basis of life - also plays an important part in this "wind trio".

sFr. 47.00
An initial piece based on repetition presented 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.

sFr. 57.00
In December 2010, I held a lecture on polyphony in the music of Schumann. This event led me to perform the complete piano works by this composer, who has remained dear to me since childhood. My composing has been influenced on a subliminal level by Schuhmann's sound meshes and quirky-fantastical lines. I became accutely aware of this fact while working on my piece for the trio Weiss-Svoboda-Henneberger. Since the content of the three main pieces ("Rezitativ und Arioso" for trombone and piano, "Lied" for saxophone and piano as well as "Mit Leidenschaft" for the trio) turned out to be rather Schumannian, I decided to dedicate it to the two main characters of the circle of the Davidsbündler (League of David).

5288 Balz Trümpy: Der Geist des Tals (2013) 17'
for soprano, trombone, cello, percussion and piano
sFr. 75.00
The Ensemble Eunoia's suggestion that I write a piece dealing with the letter 'U' set off in me a chain of associations relating to this vowel. The starting point was the tonal character of the phoneme U: For me its dark, earthy, warm timbre equated to the symbolic image of the Mother ("uterus", "ursprung" (=origin)...). My text selection combines the following excerpts taken from literature and lore that evoke different aspects of the Mother symbol: In the 3rd hymn of the legendary poet and Dionysus priest Orpheus, night is celebrated as the Mother of gods and men. In the second part of Goethe's "Faust", Mephistopheles describes the nocturnal and sinister descent into the obscure realm of the Mothers ("No way! Into the untrodden ..."), where Faust wants to lead Helena back to life. A mother grieving for her son and creation forms the basis of the liturgical "Stabat Mater". And finally, the text of "Tao te Ching" to the "valley spirit" elevates the image of the Mother as the origin of heaven and earth to the spiritual.

5247 Balz Trümpy: EIS EROTA (2002) 12'
for soprano, baritone, horn, two trumpets, trombone, percussion and strings
sFr. 62.00
Sappho and Alkaios from the isle of Lesbos are amongst the most prestigious representatives of Greek lyrics strongly connected with the Orpheus saga. After the heavenly singer has lost his beloved Eurydice to the underworld and, spurned by his endless mourning, he seeks the love of other women. Bacchante tear him to pieces in an angry rage and cast his head into the sea. The tide washes it onto the shores of Lesbos - here his mouth is once again brought to speech by the lyric of the island. Mythological notions merge with personal experience and sufferance in connection with the erotic. Eros is the ‘weirdest God’ (Alkaois) whose effect is to rip open the abyss between the highest fulfilment and the degeneration towards death. The elemental force with which he encompasses man awakes in him an orpheic longing for immortality and the desire to overcome the underworld; simultaneously bringing even more painfully the forlornness of his wish to consciousness. While Alkaios attempts to forget in wild drunkenness and sexual indulgence, we eavesdrop on Sappho, and the dark tones of a wish for love in which pain resonates with the transient. EIS EROTA combines fragments from both poets to produce a dialogue on the subject of love and death.
