… Is the main question spiking my curiosity in creating and performing.
Second-guessing my set ideas about cause and effect, may it be in music, performance or gestures. I am intrigued by action and reaction cycles, searching for the affect in the effect and vice versa.

Believing, that the use of live electronics in music and as interaction tools leads to a re-definition of the traditional composer-performer-audience trajectory, with the effect to share the affect.
Involving myself with different art forms and personalities within collaboration grants me a great exchange of thoughts and views, ultimately enhancing my individual expertise with a new depth time and time again.
I favor polyphony for Renaissance Consort and hold a deep fascination for collaboration in early and contemporary music. Since my early years I felt most comfortable making music together and this feeling is deepening as I have the pleasure to work with many different and inspiring artists.
“ I dare not employ only a single style or method, but rather the most skillful mixture of styles I can manage through my experience in various countries (…)
I do not begin a war, but perhaps rather a prelude to the unity , the dear peace, desired by all the people.”
