Panzer went on to study music theory and composition in Vienna and Salzburg, supplementing these studies with various master classes. She also studied piano with Markus Hinterhäuser. Decisive impulses came from Luigi Nono and his works. Nono’s death led to Panzer’s radical withdrawal. Her years of absence and travel gave birth to Totenklage (Lament for the Dead, a piece of memorializing  L.Nono. She also experienced further influential encounters with figures including Schäffer, Schnittke, Cage and Stockhausen. Panzer also traveled to Spain to visit Eduardo Chillida and study his space-time sculpture s.
