Autobahn Utopia is the circular highway where the One Trick Pony speeds up and overtakes, slows down and inhales, brakes and crashes.

It surrounds the villeclopedic city like a coiled snake and hums the tune of traffic and smog.

The Autobahn Utopia is a sight to behold, a song to be heard and a barrier to be crossed. It is where the driver dwells and the passer-by laments. It is a longing to leave and an eagerness to arrive.

Fragments of the visual score that served as a basis for the composition can be seen on this webpage. Click on the images or refresh the page to make your personal version.

Audio samples:



I’m on the way

I really need to go

Raindrops on the window

Traffic jam: slowly pushing

Traffic jam: standstill
