4 — 8 Trp.
The world premiere of this piece should be at the building site of the church St. Andreas in Munich, where the paintings of the artist Elisabeth Halseband were on exhibition, during the renovation of the church.
I was fascinated by the process of renovation: you tear down the plaster from the wall and below you can find something unknown and inconspicuous which is much older. For this reason this piece begins with a lot of sound layers on top of each other and then the players (which also seem to be like workers) tear down note for note.
In this contrast between the church (a place of quiet and consecration) and the building site (a place of soberness and pragmatism) the piece begins to develop itself.” — Gregor A. Mayrhofer
