Description of Style

What remained - after my first attempts in composition - influenced by the character of the organ, was the search for sounds and colours, as well as the orientation at religious texts or content. After intensive work with important works of the avant-garde, which first led to a creative crisis in the 1990s, my own musical language gradually developed. From a compositional-technical perspective, my musical language is characterised by polyphonic sound layers, clusters, as well as by the incorporation of quarter tones, modal scales and lines oriented at Gregorian music. There is a tendency towards circling monotony, to a back-pedalling and to listening silence always interrupted by vigorous explosions of expression, but all of that with minimal effort. Typical in the past few years is the incorporation of noises and sound extensions alien to ensembles (blowing, whistling, rain sticks, bells, bullroarer...).
