Atelier neuer Musik

Ingo Dorfmüller

„From a standpoint of technical advancement Holz tries in compositions such as Quintett (2009) or in his recent work for ensemble Kataklothes (2015) to gain a tonal gravitation without tonality.

Eres Holz contributed also for Sarah Nemtsov's MEKOMOT-project: new music and liturgical singing in old and new synagogues, in forgotten and present places of Jewish life in Germany and Poland.
With Allen Ginsberg's great Kaddish poem, he chose a text that stands in a tensed relationship to religious tradition. The dubious, scrupulous search in the "labyrinth of identity," which Eres Holz refers to the text, may also drive his own work.“
