JOURNALIST: Herr Huebner, there is a group of 20 pieces of work, the
so-called Meditative Aphorisms, which are to give a special insight
into the microcosm of music if I am right. You also name different
Can you tell us something about this?
Peter Huebner: These pieces of work mainly give an insight into the
tonal family relationships within the microcosm of music. We can learn a lot
What we know in our human everyday life, the different generations
great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren etc. of
both sides can also be found in the microcosm of music.
Only that in the microcosm of music, there is always one generation that has
the final say, and the other generations the further they are away
from this generation have less and less to say, and/or appear more
and more faintly. In the example of the tone with its overtones,
we see the corresponding: the so-called overtones, more distant from the fundamental
tone, appear more and more faintly.
There are generation problems every- where in life. The greater the gap is between
the generations, the more these problems become evident the more difficult
it seems to get on with each other.
Who is right? is the question always asked. And each generation claims
to be right. The older ones claim that, due to their old age, they have more
experience, and that is why they should be right. And the younger ones reply
that they have more original creativity, and that for this reason they are
equally entitled to be right. We all know these arguments, and our instinct
tells us: well it must be like that, it has always been like that,
and it will be the same in future.
The microcosm of music thoroughly enlightens us in this respect: the generation
problem comes about, when the natural harmonious order between the generations
is not observed.
At the same time, the microcosm of music does indeed differentiate between
the generations but it does not say indiscriminately that the older
ones must rank higher in the hierarchy than the younger ones.
From the viewpoint of the microcosm of music, the older ones may
just as well have the final say towards the younger ones as the
younger ones towards the older ones, only: it is not
possible for them to have the final say at one and the same time.
