produced at the ELAK studio in Vienna, Austria (Institute for Composition and Ele- ktroakustik / Hochschule für Musik und darst Kunst)

My piece is based on a constructivist idea that I call
"compact music". By mathematical division of a piece of music in 2,4,8,16 etc ... parts of the same lengths and by their overlays, one can arrive at a rather short summary, campact and gray.

revolutionaries.

"Who destroyed my song? ..."
