Over the past five years, the musical collective HARMONIE59 (produced by Roderik Vanderstraten) has produced music for several theater productions, videos and films, mostly as studio improvisations in collaboration with Scott Roller and a team of colleagues– which are available as albums on Bandcamp. H59 sessions have encompassed two to twelve musicians in a focused atmosphere of free exchange.

In December 2010 several mutual friends brought Scott together with the multi-faceted brilliant German Spoken-word artist and poet Timo Brunke as EmCees for an awards event at the Theaterhaus Stuttgart, and they have since collaborated intensely on a variety of projects – most notably two full-length two-man shows: Der Übergang des Abendlandes, 2011 (The Transition of the Western World – a commission from the Theaterhaus, Stuttgart) and Ein Abend mit dem Herrn Sensenmann, 2013 (An Evening with the Grim Reaper – a commission of the Palliative Care Network). Now there is FJUTSCHERDEUTSCH.

A brand-new recording by Gary Verkade of my old composition Flux for organ (1987) – on a wonderful-sounding instrument in northernmost Sweden late in 2014 – was the occasion for me to hear this old piece again after many years and remember that I had composed a whole range of modules written out on paper and then distributed on the page at will and fixed in place.
Hearing that fine recording of the material anew, I realised that I could return the fragments to their original free state and let them re-combine freely by using a shuffle mode to play the samples, or make new orderings of the material or use it further in performances…
