“PRISMA” (2020)

Instrumentation: String Quartet

The starting point for my piece Prisma is a single bar that I see as a unit with unchangeable components. Such components are not exact pitches or exact dynamics, but directions (glissando upwards, crescendo), which I also call “micro-components”. The material which I develop in this piece and which I see as “changeable” consists of “macro components” – the elements that are “outside” of this single bar / this unit -, as well as the precise technical specifications.
