Commentary 

After texts by Rambach and Printz.
As in many of my works, and in “Wheelwork of sounds” too, voice timbres form the basis for the selection and compilation of instrumental timbres. 
The phonetic similarity of instrument and voice is predicted scientifically, while vocal sound is simulated instrumentally. The vocal sound does not have to be heard directly as a speech sound in each case, but always provides a general balance of timbre. 
A developing variation of ever varying instrumentations of the same phoneme from within a rhythmic wheelwork forms. 
In memoriam to the speaking machine of the Austrian inventor Johann Wolfgang Ritter von Kempelen (1734 - 1804).
