Description of Style

I attempt to create a musical language that bridges construction with intuition. Due to my involvement with natural sciences, I let the acquired procedures, such as self-organisation, chaotic systems, or pattern recognition models as the algorithmic basis, influence my compositions. Above this solidly-built foundation I always leave a systematic area of freedom for spontaneous decisions. (The contradiction remains.)
