Notation legend

«For the two bass nicophones I composed the first time in the room collage "Stasis" (2011). Dirk Rotbrust had shown me the instrument when we experimented with various percussion instruments.

The use of various mallets such as metal, large, soft rubber, hard plastic, tubular bells, various striking points and playing techniques always produces a very broad sound spectrum of highly differentiated, long-lasting resonances. Since then I have composed several works with the instrument.»

Rebecca Saunders (1967), composer
