Work introduction

I wrote this work between winter 2014 and summer 2015; it was commissioned by the Ö1 Talentbörse–Kompositionspreis 2014 [“Austrian Broadcasting Corp. 2014 Composition Prize”], a co-op effort of Austrian Broadcasting, the Austrian National Bank and Universal Edition.

Lorenz Traummusik is my second string quartet; it relates to the American mathematician Edward Lorenz, considered the father of chaos theory. I concentrate in the piece mainly on the various temporal aspects of music, microtonality, characteristics of Klangfarbe and musical application of chaos theory, which particularly interests me at the moment.

Lorenz Traummusik is subdivided into 24 short formal sections, in which I attempted to explore concepts such as “nonlinear development” and “alteration from the musical viewpoint.” In the course of the piece, a nonlinear musical discourse evolves in a state of continuous development, thereby constantly recontextualising the qualities and behaviour of the various elements which form the work’s differing constituent parts.

Lorenz Traummusik is dedicated to Virve Magdaleno and the Minetti String Quartet.
