ABOUT:
I like the idea of working with sounds and silences in various spaces and environments. Music, to me, is the expression of a creative process – a creative process that revolves around playing with sound and silence.

Born and raised in a small village in the beautiful Alps of Western Austria, I was surrounded by nature and nature sounds. This had a huge impact on me. I took plenty of time to head out for walks – simply listening, “gathering” sounds and silences.
(Well, I should also mention my dad’s collection of vinyls, my mum, who sang wonderful lullabies to me, and my uncle, who played almost thirty instruments and let me play them too. Very important companions on my journey!).

Later on, I literally got lost in space . I was amazed by the various effects different spaces have on sound and silence. Combining all these elements – space, sound, silence, and person (musician/musicians and audience) – leads to a mutually influential tetrad relationship that is always unique. This is so fascinating.

Feel welcome to join me on this little sound and silence journey. I would be delighted to meet you. Perhaps you can drop by at a concert – or two  – in the near future.
