Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Anabasis IV (2011-12), for Bb-clarinet and live-electronics, is part of a larger cycle for solo
    instruments and live-electronics commissioned by the Berlin-Rheinsberger Kompositionspreis
    2011.
    The emphasis of “Anabasis” lies on a complex structure and their interrelation with the material
    and the spatialization. This stems from the negation of the preconception of a natural, eternal, and
    univocal way of perceiving, that cannot be changed. It also stands against the paternalist attitude
    towards the listeners who are supposed to be unable to understand more “complex music”. In
    doing so, the piece with its complex structure is an attempt against the mechanism that relegates
    music to a commodity, a “decorative art”, something incapable of making a statement on its own.
    So, the piece asks the listener not to be passively consumed, but to be a site for active and
    individual exploration. The piece invites us to follow it until the end, to encounter it.
