Description of Style

For me it is important to compose for a particular occasion, space, musician or collaborate with artists from other disciplines, which I can relate to. The idea of an anonymous audience is therefore bearable. After a relatively long accomodation and preparation phase, almost everything is questioned before any new composition, the free tonality is redefined to ensure a high degree of originality. Follow-up shows, the pressure of my compositions, the storage by recording or an overly rapid expansion of a oeuvre is not really what I aspire.
