Since his youth, Buchholz has been occupied with Neue Musik. These include his compositions Eruption (1990/91), String Quartet (1988) and Two Rhapsodies (1990).

Examples are Les dances imaginaire for two orchestras (2008) and Armenian Hymns for alto solo, 2 oboes and choir (2013). The chamber music comprises about 70 works, including cyclical compositions such as domino per due pianoforti (1992), Trois Airs Baroques (1998/99), Fourteen States to Bach (1999), RICERCAR and CHORAL (1999/2000), UNDEUTschLICHt - eleven caricatures for two harps (2003), KRUNK for string quartet (2005) and Tetraktys (2009).
