The singer is asked to react to the vibrations of the tuba, by using his voice in an improvisatory manner. In some way the singer is manipulated and penetrated by the Tuba throughout the piece. Different versions of this composition were made in collaboration with the performers. The piece was commissioned by Philipp Mayer. Treib I was performed at Spielfestival in Andorf - Austria, Treib II was performed at Labor Sonor in Berlin and Treib III was performed in Echoraum Vienna.
This piece was premiered by student´s of Musikgymnasium Linz at Brucknerhaus Linz. Soulfly imitates a classroom of teenagers who are shooting during the lesson. Those paperplanes literally appear in the piece in order to interact with musical patterns and give performative cues. Phrases can be triggered by the planes and flight patterns of the planes can be imitated sonically by the players. This way the conductor is confronted with unplanned chance-like musical and performative events while conducting the part of the piece which is written down in traditional notation. Maybe the conductur feels just like a teacher in front of funny teenagers.
