"Intensive music making "(Bernhard Gander) may be expected from the Ensemble Wiener Collage - whether this happens (as with Gander) in the footsteps of the rock group Motörhead or in the extreme shortage of James Tenney's Postal Pieces, whose score fits on one page. Precision in extreme miniature forms - for example "30 seconds playing time for four instruments as sum, summary, synthesis of my entire previous work" (Dietmar Hellmich) - Alexander Stankovski opposes a "slow modulation from a conscious-analytical to a meditative-hypnotic hearing and back". About his new piece he adds "visual associations as realization aid: slipping icebergs, a walkadaver sinking in the deep sea to the seabed and its complete dissolution; sharp pictures by Malewitsch, Rothko and Rainer; Transition from night to dusk.
