Performed on film by ‘cellist Anton Lukoszievize, FoxFire Eins natrimpentothal (1993), is the name of a solo composition by Helmut Oehring. In FoxFire Eins the ‘cellist must play with both hands plucking and striking the strings which are tuned down a perfect fourth. The child of profoundly deaf parents, Oehring’s first language was signing. Oehring hears music as gestures – for him music comes out of movement.
