    New composition for string quartet out on all platforms and soon on vinyl!

    Last summer I devoted some time to imagining how to translate the reflections and different faces of a prism into music. This was a serious challenge I must say. The outcome of these explorations is available on all platforms and in spring there will be a vinyl. Thanks to the friends of the Goldmund Quartet for the commission and their talent and Neue Meister for the ongoing support.

    The other good news is that in a couple of weeks Prismatica will be released on vinyl!
