Birkenkötter, Jörg (*1963)

"Jörg Birkenkötter's music reveals something akin to a breakdown or pulverization of form, including the overall formal design. As the work proceeds to interrupt itself - or perhaps we should use the word ,shatter' - it calls itself into question. All the same, this breakdown of form also brings about a new florescence of musical shapes that have not yet hardened into convention, or at least have nothing discernibly conventional about them."
(Hans-Peter Jahn, 1997
