The oratorio “Our Beloved Lady” is a declaration of love to the woman per se, to her manifold as divine nature; it‘s a reflection and a prayer. The three holy girls (Barbara, Katherine, Margaret) mark the life of a Salige [ˈzaːˌlɪɡə] who is born as a daughter of the Percht [pɛʁçt], the bright sun, and brings also light to the world. The Bavarian and German texts are based on the Song of Songs from the Old Testament and on the mythology of the southern German-speaking parts. They are also translated into English.

The song cycle "12 Hymns for Bavaria" was written in 2018 on the occasion of a Bavarian double jubilee: the bicentennial as a constitutional state and the centenary as "Freistaat", a democratic republic. It sings about the brighter and the darker sides of Bavaria with a pastoral, saucy, rocking, first seemingly impressionistic, then unheard music. It even ends with a real alternative to the existing Bavarian anthem: a democratic one, religion-neutral, and oriented to the human being. All lyrics in Bavarian.

gSALZn (salted)

Bavarian DJ chamber opera for two speakers (male and female), mute, DJ, baritone, and DAW

score (lyrics in bavarian)

POD (print on demand)
paperback
204 pages, A4
ISMN: 979-0-700374-07-5
publication date: 28.08.2019
languages: German / English / libretto in Bavarian

price: 29,90 €

available at your local bookstore,
or online at BoD (German) or Amazon ( de   com   uk   fr   it   es )
or from us, order by email

The Bavarian DJ chamber opera “gSALZn” (“salted”) tells the story of salt up to the present day: 250 million years of Earth’s history in 90 minutes, going from the origin of salt via the tectonic changes of the earth to the construction of the first modern pipeline of the world, the brine pipeline from Bad Reichenhall to Traunstein, and to the environmental awareness of our time. The events on stage stay radically static up to third act: only at the end of the opera, human kind appears. The DJ pre-produces the music according to the score, presents it live and “conducts” the living and the non-living actors. The music combines elements from rave, classic, and experimental electronic music. All lyrics in Bavarian.

Drawizlbabuzi

poem cycle with music for speaker, singer, and accordion

score & libretto (lyrics in Bavarian)

POD (print on demand)
paperback
96 pages, A4
ISMN: 979-0-700374-08-2
publication date: 12.10.2020
languages: German / English / lyrics in Bavarian

price: 19,90 €

available at your local bookstore,
or online at BoD (German) or Amazon ( de   com   uk   nl   fr   it   es   ca   au   br )
or from us, order by email

The poem cycle “Drawizlbabuzi” has been written as a parody on so-called “water glass reading sessions” (respectable poet with manuscript near water glass on white tea cloth with flower bouquet). The Bavarian lyrics, the sound poetry, and the nursery rhymes have either deliberately no deeper meaning, or they are onomatopoetically meaningless, or they do artistic brain acrobatics of its own meaning. The music comments on the texts through accordion pieces made of Landlers, Marches, Polkas, “Boarische”, Blues, and experimental stuff, or through songs. Manner and melodies of the Alpine folk music are as distinctive as the uniqueness in the way they are used.

The libretto section (for gentle readers as well as the speaker) contains all lyrics with some notes on the music. The score section contains the sheet-music with all of the speaker's texts for the musician to read along.
