part of: Bilderschlachten / Batailles d’Images
instrumentation: PROLOGUE has nearly the same instrumentation as Bernd Alois Zimmermanns Musique pour les soupers du Roi Ubu. The string quartet is added – Prologue + Chiral Spiral (for string quartet and electronic) is composed as a counterpart and leads directly into Zimmermanns piece. A combination is desired, but PROLOGUE can of course be played independently.
