Description of Style

The starting point of all the compositions are always complex soundscapes, noises that are on the one side fit together as "ready-mades", on the other side get filtered through multiple processes of transformation and then are put into new morphological relationships. The processual-gestural structures that occur, eventually coagulate to izarre soundscapes.

Gerald Trimmel, 1996
