Music is listening to pictures and stories. In my kind of artistic performance, the arts are closely linked. When composing, it is always the inner and outer images that are transformed into music. From my beginnings in the 90's, I had a light dramaturgy, projections, live-cameras, film, choreography, creative arts or laser, which was a fixed part of the musical narrative.


I grew up in times, when the instrumentarium of my music studio occupied a whole room. In those times, composing on paper was the means of choice. I basically kept that. With the difference, that today, the technical stuff fits into a much smaller system, consisting of several connected computers, which are equipped with big orchestra-libraries, band- electro- and ethno-libraries, and also a wild collection of the craziest instruments and samples, which I collected and created during the years. Connected to my sound studio, by recording all the live parts of the musicians, so an individual overall sound is created. And when larger ensembles are needed, I go to nearby churches, concert halls or other suitable premises with my mobile sound studio and a bunch of high-class microphones. 


but the space for writing my scores has remained sacred. I love the symphonic sound, which certainly has its origin in my roots, my first profession as a classical orchestra musician, which I like to enriche with imaginative or selfmade  instruments. But also chamber music ensembles or completely different combinations of instruments, from soloist to opulent, from spherical to melodious, from analog to electronic, from occidental to ethnological, can be found in my scores, according to what the story requires and what wants to be told.


I love today's creative freedom, in which the boundaries of genres are blurred and the possibilities are so great that the solution often lies in the reduction of funds.
