David Sawer’s: "Rebus" and compositions by Harrison Birtwistle, Mauricio Kagel and Anton Webern.
There were concerts on June 27th and the 29th 2004 in Cologne and Essen. The world premiere of Rebus was June 27th by Musikfabrik in WDR.
Rebus is a picture puzzle by compositional principle containing small musical elements that are modified, augmented and enhanced and whose instrumentation changes. A teacher training program for elementary and music school teachers was organised to enable them to learn exercises and techniques to creatively approach David Sawer’s music in a multi-facetted way.
