"SAIS. is a piece about cows. Cows are a topic quite familiar for a composer who
lives in an Austrian mauntain village at 1000 metres hight. He finds them right
in front if his door. The cows that are grazing on a juicy green under a bright
blue sky - so we might imagine - are one side of the trio.
Within the 100 page long score we meet them in the shape of a line of overtones. Just as natural as
the life of a cow on an alpine meadow is the musical material that builds SAIS.
as a scale of overtones above a low G sharp. But there is the other side, too,
the cultural if you will, where humans interfere nature. In SAIS. this aspect
manifests itself as an additional tempered scale, and, using the the metophor,
as the cow as livestock and useful object." (Raoul Mörchen)
