Between vital emotions such as "freedom", "longing" and being imprisoned in the constraints of reason and the hypo-rationalized world, every human being has to find his own way! This was already preoccupying me in 1984; today - almost 30 years later - this antagonism has become more important than ever: We live in a society where computers and programs are almost fascistically dominating everything! The longing for a free life and one's own vibration, instead of the "Geo-Triangle", where everything is regulated, measured, organized and planned. Freedom against total programming... OUT OF THE MATRIX!...that is the message of this piece.

Introduction: THE LONGING OF MY GEO-TRIANGLE. A REPORT For two flutes and piano was composed in 1984 in this original occupation, later then than version for 2 flutes and string quartet. On the other hand, the work picks out as a central theme the tension between emotion / expressiveness on the one hand and calculation / construction which is put out modern music. Ringing lashes, sober heat of crabs and Wagner's citation concealed in the piano bass" Sink hernieder, night of the love" belong to the irritating aperiodicity of this work.

Dedication: Dedicated to my Aristo Nr. 1550 (Made in Germany)

Additional remarks: After an aggressive introduction ('like scourge slashes') the 'center' 'pianissimo geometrico' (quality of a clockwork) is in almost selective stylistics and cited in the cello of Wagner's 'Sink hernieder, night of the love'. The centre is built strictly reflecting-symmetrically as crab-in heat.
