Composer’s notes

Soprano Maria Husmann had asked me to write a short composition for the theatre piece “Eines nicht wie das Andere” at the Berliner Ensemble. The cooperation led to this composition that combines my music and a text by Bertold Brecht. The musical ideas was to create a humorous and flowing atmosphere by using freely created sounds and sung parts that are written out in detail.
