Description of Style

With each piece of work, I try again to comprise a me currently fascinating examination into sound. In regard to vocal works this is usually the text, in instrumental works it may be the acoustic range, for which the piece might be developed, or the instrument and its possibilities, the combination of musical styles I am currently interested in, the combination of electronics and live-music, the possibilities of musicians for whom I write and much more.
