Roman Haubenstock-Ramati (1919 Krakau - 1994 Vienna) (Fig. a) felt the need for new notational principles as a result of his use of the variabale form Mobile, i.e. closed, repetitive continuations (of sound). He first presented his solution in 1959 as Musikalische Graphik (musical drawings) (See Fig. b, the Anti-opera Comedie). Acoustic innovation is to be found in the Miroirs (Mirrors)(1984-1991), where music becomes a kind of space-sound sculpture, thus distancing itself from the listener and defying unified perception. The sound of the piano that repeats itself over and over again (Example) cannot therefore be clearly identified. The work changes everytime the listener moves. (M. Saary)
