8319 Dieter Ammann: A (tenir) tension (2002/03) 11'30
Trio
for flute, marimbaphone, vibraphone and percussion instruments
sFr. 21.00
The completely dissimilar sound generation of flute and percussion, for example with regard to the acquisition and decay times, formed an important compositional aspect while working on this new ouvre. This dissimilitude, by analogy, is also transferred to the temporal configuration insofar as the rhythmical form of extremely tight motorical passages ("moltoritmico") ranges over diverse intermediate stages to flexible handling parts ("tempo fluido") producing, thereby, tightly packed episodes with highly differentiated timbral play alongside processes where virtuosity in the traditional sense is central. It is so that the trio produces in quick succession various states, which are highly demanding for the interpreters, with regards interaction and playing technique.

Following the experience of 'Darkness' which had been composed before the fall of the Berlin wall and the change in our relationship with the Soviet Union, I wanted to express another vision of the possibilities which our era has to offer - the hope of peace, as opposed to the nightmare vision which I sought to depict in 'Darkness'.

"Klänge streifen, Rhythmen streifen, Melodien streifen, Streifen schichten, Streifen verweben, Streifen verdichten. Streifend durch Klanglandschaften ziehen, streifend Klangfarben berühren,streifend Streifen streifen......." Two string instruments stand face on with two percussion instruments whereby the "percussion's" primary objective is to attempt tonal alignment with the strings. The vibraphone plays a coupling role between the two parties. Polar oscillating movements, stratifying and sometimes recolouring, flowing sound bands and flitting pulsations alternate throughout the piece.

10235 Michael Schneider: Die chemischen Elemente (2008) 6'
for flute, saxophone and vibraphone

The structure and course of this piece is based on the periodic table of chemical elements. The three instruments represent specific groups of elements within the seven periods of the periodic system (metals, transition metals, non-metals, noble gasses). Small variations in playing technique and "plasticity" represent the chemical properties of each single element in one-bar 5/4 "portraits", which are linked to form a suspended tonal stream.
