Grundlinienspiel
for flute, viola, dulcimer, zither, harp and accordion (2007, ~9´)

Kaleidoscopic changes of a simple model were caused by parameter changes of the generating computer algorithms. Those parameters determine global characteristics such as directional tendencies of lines, layers of instrumentation and combinatorics of rhythmical patterns within a chosen frame that was inspired by the special structure of the ensemble (equally divided between instruments with natural sound decay respectively continuous tone). There are no thematic ideas but rather a game with tonal elements that shape our musical experience and preferably constitute themselves in perception.
