Differenz/Wiederholing 1

Bernhard Lang

For piano, flute and cello (25')

“The head is the organ of exchange but the heart is the amorous organ of repetition”

Based on the scribblings and erratic writings of the preceding solo pieces “Schrift 1-3” and the confrontation with Martin Arnolds loop aestethics this piece was written as the starting point of a new series.

If there is any theme to be found within the piece its the interplay of different repetitions, of repeated differences contained within the loose form of a notated improvisation: found structures, tiny objects, brought into view by the augmenting effect of repetition, continuously beeing forgotten and recovered.
