1. Music, Definition - based on a text of Hyacinth Freiherr von Wieser(Prinzhorn-Sammlung 2427)

2. Musicalia in der Natur?Herzenschtzi komm - based on a combinationof Wilhelm Muller's palimpsest of naturalist diary and upside-down waltz(P-S1096) and Emma Hauck's extraordinary Cy Twombly-like love letters (P-S 3622/4)

3. Naturtone - Hyacinth Freiherr von Weiser (P-S 2427)

4. Partitur - a realisation of Oskar Herzberg's beautifully obsessive, speculative musical notation (P-S 3970)

5. Abschied - a realisation of Hersberg's Abschied-March pour piano (P-S 3988/N) with his apocaliptic text. Erclarung uber Erduntergang(P-S 3943/1

Texts were taken from the Prinzhorn collection of Psychiatric Art. The numbers are catalogue numbers.
