This piece - "Abendstück" - is the last of four parts from the "¡A la calle! ¡Fuera! Raus auf die Straße! Luft!" cycle commissioned by the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin for their project "Clang Cut Book Berlin - Buenos Aires".
The music is based on two texts Florian Neuner wrote especially for this collaborative work; they are talking about two (?) cities named "B." I am using transcriptions of the intonational curves from four recordings of Florian's text realised by two different German native speakers (Florian and myself) and two Spanish native speakers (Patricía Perez Prat and Minerva Peinador Pérez, the latter being also the professional Spanish translator of the original text).
The piece may be performed separately; in Berlin it was preceded by three "Satellites" which are focusing on particular aspects of the original text and employ three different combinations of instruments out of the six from "Abendstück":
Satellit 1: piccolo, clarinet, glockenspiel, 2 megaphones
Satellit 2: oboe d'amore, contrabass clarinet, tape
Satellit 3: piano, percussion, speaker, video
