As Stefan Thut describes it in his own words:
"A faintly coloured noise (0) / an amalgam of noise and pitch (1) / a pitch (2). The first category refers to white noise which never occurs in its purity since the actual environment always colours a white noise. for this reason I decided to label it 'a faintly coloured noise‘. the ‚0‘ number reflects the character of an average sonic material without any distinct feature. going from 0 to 1 is a fundamental step in determining further a sound. for me this step reflects the cultural achievement of building tools to produce sound and makes a cut into the sum of all noise. getting on to the next step (2) highlights pitch as the main amount of the sound chosen. these three steps appear in an ever changing structure involving repetitions and change. change occurs as going from one step to another and as turns of the order as well. The score of ‚abc, 1-6‘ unifies the performers’ activities through the applying of a similar structure. the six pages enable six rounds to go through the described steps at individual paces and leave it up to the performers whether to merge the sounds or to let them happen as single sounds. the relational aspect among the three parts become apparent after a certain time of performing / listening." - ST
