Description of Style

 Music-theoretical dimensions of electronic and computer-music can be mainly derived from perceptive research, its implementation is only possible with precise control. But my musical works not only use results from scientific research and software development, as these are artistic works on processes of perception and the reflection of the use of technical means in music. The additional collaboration with artists from other media, the merging of video and music as well as the introduction of elements of the avant-garde rock - which has grown symbiotically with the electronic media - meet my understanding of myself as a composer experimenting with media-techniques between science and music.
