This is a piece that takes a lot of commitment to do, because the score is very complex, and the pages and pages of instructions (mostly in German!) can be very obtuse. But one of the reasons I wanted to be involved in contemporary music was the chance to really dig into tough and dense scores such as this and bring them to life. No matter how complex the sonic material is, our job is to find a way to make great music out of it, and that's a great challenge to be working on.
