STYX indicates a point of view, a limit of thinking and feeling, from which the most iridescent sound patterns, ridiculing any theory of music, can be conceived in their essential features, and thus become accessible for a musical composition.
Derived from five basic sources (fragments of outdoor recordings) generations of sounds and sonorous processes are produced in rising and falling order by a constant change of electronic transformation and construction.

"Die Unerbittlichkeit der Klänge trieb manchen Besucher in die Flucht; wer blieb, war vielleicht ratlos, jedenfalls aber gebannt von der Kraft des Dargebotenen."
Die Presse, Vienna 1986

"...ein Bündel an akustischen Horrorvisionen, Barbarismen, Explosionen, Kurzschlüsse, Bombardierungen ..."
