“Quader amorph” was composed as commission of Sender Freies Berlin for SFB-Klanggalerie January 24 – February 10, 2001. The whispering voice tells secret stories from Djuang-Dsi, the ancient Tao book (3000 years before). The rolling bowls and flying sounds remain the visitors of the everchanging universe where we all are bound in. The speakers shall be in positions where the stereo pairs cross each other on different levels. The soundfiles shall be played as loops.
