for orchestra [2000] | duration: 12’00”

Earobics for orchestra – premiered in a gymnasium in 2000 during the Klangspuren-festival in Schwaz/Austria – was conceived to musically address two basic conditions of sporting activities: cyclic movement and pulsative repetition. This goal is achieved by vigorous changes of rhythm and on the basis of traditional forces like tonality or thematic developments. After the initially mechanical iteration of a string-cluster faltering and dissolving, the main section is introduced by a vividly dancing and fresh chord-pattern in C-Major which switches in the center of the piece into a fugato and then culminates in a frenetic stretta. The composition pursues one objective first and foremost: to musically express drive and a sense of motoric joy.
