for saxophone quartet (S, A, T/S, B)
Writing a saxophone quartet for clair-obscur has been on my mind for a long time. As a composer I mainly work for TV and film and the opportunity to write for my former quartet was very tempting and liberating, because this time I didn’t have to care about what’s happening in the film. It wasn’t a big surprise for me that, while composing the piece, suddenly there were my very own film scenes in my head.

The piece reflects the inner monologue, once involved with a TV remote control. Certain noise bits are getting processed, while others just became an abstract sound scenery. In our “Zapping”, we get driven by an anxious beat, consisting of switch noises and are fading out with the sounds of the German dubbed “The Avengers”. The main note of the piece is the sounding B, the tune of the broadcasting note of Channel 34 in Berlin.
