Ensemble Zeitfluss. Edo Micic – conductor
This coming Monday, the Ensemble Zeitfluss (www.ensemble-zeitfluss.com) is celebrating their 10th anniversary with a concert that combines the old with the new. The program features two works by Charles Ives as well as commissioned miniatures—happy birthday pieces—by composers who have strong ties with the ensemble.
I am very happy to be part of this celebration with a new piece, Translucent Currents, for large ensemble.

Last night, I put the final brush strokes on a new score. Translucent Currents is a miniature for chamber ensemble, scored for flute, oboe, clarinet, alt sax, bassoon, horn, trumpet, 2 trombones, piano, percussion, and string quintet and has a duration of approximately 3 minutes.
Translucent Currents has been composed within a period from September 5th to September 29th, with a 7-day break, in between, for my trip to Athens for the ICMC/SMC Conference. Above, you can view the first four pages of the score.
The work was commissioned by conductor Edo Micic for the anniversary concert “10 Years Ensemble Zeitfluss,” which will take place on October 27th in Minoritensaal Graz, Austria.
The anniversary concert features commissioned miniatures by prominent composers, such as Gerd Kühr, Klaus Lang, Gerhard Stäbler, Joanna Wozny, Elisabeth Harnik, Denovaire, Krešimir Seletković, Mirela Ivičević, Florian Geßler, Daniel Oliver Moser, Orestis Toufektsis, Gerd Noack, Anselm Schaufler, Klaus Dorfegger, Joachim Jung, and Gerhard Krammer.
