Werkkommentar: 

Alaq is the first piece of a larger piano cycle, which I am still working on. As in my piece A.Q.II it uses tuning-fork-techniques and preparations, which produce sounds in the spectrum between fragility and clearness. The main question was, how is it possible to write piano music in the 21st century. Which qualities should it have? This question I am trying to answer in that cycle.

 

Alaq lasts approx. 53 seconds. It refers to surah Alaq (96) in the recitation of Sheik Shuraim, which has the same duration.
