Program note (English): (Premiere: 3-2-1995 - Kölner Philharmonie - Schönberg Ensemble, cond. Reinbert de Leeuw). In 'Passevite' six typical Tristano-harmonies were "worn out" - in the sense that they are overused (Lennie Tristano was a jazz pianist/composer).

Changes with Noise is a linear translation of the six harmonies in the form of a solo for the French horn with addition of more instruments. Characteristic is that all phrases are accompanied by noise, reminiscent of that heard on "obscure" recordings of jazz music. The second part of Changes with Noise gives a long series of transpositions of the basic harmonies, until only the sixth exists on all the twelve steps of the circle of fifths. This ends in Chase; a varied performance of the tutti ensemble and the drummer as a soloist. The piece ends with a very fast retrograde of the whole
