Extra musical references - art, architecture and literature - permeate the music of Jarrel. For Schoeller however, it is nature that emerges as the perpetual subject in his work.
What these two composers share in common is perhaps an attraction towards the use of the orchestra and electronics. In a similar fashion, what links Hass and Jarrel is their taste for writing solo and symphonic music. In general, all three composers approach sound in a new way, treating it as a poetic and structural component. According to Schoeller sound is not "aesthetically neutral". Finally, amidst many other subtleties the world of shadows is also a recurrent subject of inspiration for both Jarrel and Hass.
