Sandris Murins hat mich interviewt.
Textfassung ist etwas anders als Videofassung

What is a good musical composition for you?

The main aspect is that it is auto-reflexive, that it has an awareness of its conditions, and of social and cultural contexts as well as physical surroundings, and it tries to reflect this with its own means. The second aspect is, it should be original, there should be something new about it. The power of innovation is paradoxically the lasting effect: something was won, was captured for the first time. That’s the difference between a Bach fugue and a baroque fugue written today — one still feels that here a boundary has fallen.
