Description of Style

Composed exclusively vocal works for solo, chorus (2-8 voices), below), choral works (mainly for the Spielbodenchor Dornbirn) - including vocal-experimental choral pieces, arrangements of domestic (Vorarlberg) and international folk songs, pop songs, traditional  songs. Many of the choral compositions were done for certain political topics such as: work, right to laziness, immigration (Fremd sein ist ein Witz) written in terms of semi-staged performances. The compositions exhibit strong text references, often setting of own texts. Children's songs have a big place (series such as: Gauls KINDERLIEDER, 10 CDs) and own dialect songs (Alemannic dialect, Dornbirn). Style of all his works: major/minor system and harmonic extensions. By chance also sound-experimental vocal works, especially sounds and rhythm pieces related to language. (Poetry and music).
