World premiere Witten 1979

This composition is the result of an intense study of the timbre element. It was premiered in 1979 during the Wittener Tage fur neue Kammermusik. The composition is bipartite; it contains a multitude of differentiation processes concerning articulation, linked with a tremendous rhythmic accuracy in every detail, and extremely small melodious shifts. Consequently the sound material is freed from its strait jacket of preconceived, external, and imposed structural restrictions. Minimal tone movements arise, sound spaces with an intense drama, out of which a new time-experience is created for the listener.The composition was inspired by the sculpture La Meditation by Auguste Rodin, which the composer came into contact with during an exhibition at the Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Rilke wrote about this sculpture: never before has a human body been concentrated like this around its inner essence, never before has it been strained like this by its own soul and eased again by the elasticity of its own blood.
(Paul-Heinz Dittrich).
