Program Note

Train for seven players and field recording: The concept for this piece is the discovery of music in everyday and often mechanical surroundings,such as an ICE Deutsche Bahn train. In September 2014 I made several recordings of my train rides. For this piece I selected one minute of a field recording and transcribed the sound for mixed ensemble. The piece slowly transitions from the field recording to incorporating the instruments, to the ensemble making train music on its own.

Premiere: April 16, 2015 during Spring Festival The Hague at Korzo Theater. Train II premiere: October 5, 2015 at Het Nutshuis Den Haag.
