Version 1a

Version 1c

Programme Note for Version 1c

Style 1 is a modular system and can be realized with different instrumentations. The basic concept is to sequence large numbers of variants, be it musical styles, transpositions, speech melodies or unlimited octavations. Samples from the mass media serve as media for this; I call this approach "music with music".

Style 1 is also an exercise in minimalism.

About the "style melody" Johannes Kreidler wrote a text for "New Music and Aesthetics in the 21st Century", Vol.6 (Wolke Publishing House).
