Work introduction

The composer about his work:

Repetition - change

Goal-oriented - process-like striving constantly interrupted

Movement - hesitation - return again

Searching for a different continuation

Pictures of slowly changing surfaces - multi-layered - interlocking

"Ein Lied, das über das Ende des Liedes hinaus ein anderes Ende suchte..." (Kafka)

(A Song that beyond the end of the song is searching for a different end)

 

„... In Time Out, composed in 1995, attempts to progress in processes are constantly interrupted and return to the starting point. Most sparingly, flute and harp set their subtle accents into the tender tissue of the eight solo strings mostly treated in blocks..."

Gerhard Kramer, Die Presse - 6. 2. 1996
