(commissioned by Tonspur, Vienna for the sound installation by Andres Bosshard, MuseumsQuartier 2011))

When I was given the commission, it was clear to me, that for the first time I would be flying somewhere between structured sound composition and sound installation, between a linear piece and something, which does not necessary request linear way of listening. In connection with the Andres Bosshard’s idea of “Sound Heaven / Klang Himmel”, a fundamental attitude has been formed, which shaped later general atmosphere of this new composition: I wanted to have sound clouds, which are able to let variety amount of “heavenly light” coming through down to us. I wanted sound carpet, which would make me safe’n’sound on one hand and a thunder-bolt or stormy resonation which would awake me on the other. And I wanted glass to be the material which sonifies ligh to our body.

Looking back to my residency in MQ in 2004 (as a neighbour of Andres Bosshard) the piece is also kind of tribute to what I could learn from him ...
