The Blue Symphony describes a brief 'history of the development of human hearing' from the creation of our world to the present. Hundreds of noises and tones can be heard: sonically processed, shortened, rhythmized, connected to a journey through time at gigantic speed. The beginning - nobody knows what he was like. The sound of water, a female voice, cello chords that can only be heard in their overtones form the starting material. This results in large-scale, monochrome carpets that shift and overlap. Then a 'tonal protozoan' develops, enlarges and multiplies with ever new sounds to become audible first movements of life. Sounds from nature - falling stones, water, wind, volcanic eruptions - follow. It gets louder, the sound becomes tangible and dense. Individual animal sounds emerge and mix with human voices. Social life begins ". (Götz Lemberg) Despite this timeline of development, the" Blue Symphony "is not a simple chronicle - the piece unfolds as music in space.
