Christoph Delz drew his inspiration from the natural world, environmental sounds, literary texts and from early musical styles and compositions. These sources of inspiration were not hidden: he used them in titles of compositions and in the music itself, depicting them clearly, occasionally to the extent of an exact reproduction. His use of these "ready-mad" sounds was conscious and serious within clear self-imposed parameters. Nevertheless, or perhaps for this reason, their use adds a light, almost playful dimension to the works.
