«Zyklus für einen Schlagzeuger»

Percussion cycle: […] 16 printed pages are attached at the side to a spiral; there is no beginning and no end. The player can begin with any page, and then plays through the sequence of the cycle. He stands within a circle of percussion instruments and turns during the performance. […] The cycle was composed in 1959 as an obligatory piece for the Kranichstein competition for percussionists.
