For the ear:

For commercially available CD productions have been published, two of them at the IFO label - more details on the recordings page!

Some mp3-files are available. Some of them are compressed very much, others are generated from bad sources (cassette tape), so quality is not always fine. The samples are sorted by categories and you will find file-sizes and content descriptions.

Improvisation on verses of Psalm 139

 
Where can I go from your Spirit?
  Where can I flee from your presence?
     If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
     if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
  If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
  if I settle on the far side of the sea,
     even there your hand will guide me,
     your right hand will hold me fast. :
