Description of Style

Both instruments follow a uniform gesture, speak the same language, use the same musical material. But it was the small deviations - for example, that even the same tone on two bassoons sounds slightly different - which interested me. Each of the four pieces tries, with a very clearly defined repertoir of motives, to weave themes together across the "Canvas of Time". I did not want to use unusual playing techniques (glissandi, playing without a tube, multiphonics, quasi-pizzicato articulation, etc.) as an end unto themselves, but rather as a self-contained musical-gestural quality.
