Description of Style

I strive for a colored ecstatic style, which wanders through soul landscapes and touches the big issues and coherences. At the same time I feel the need for a clear, strict form. I started with the composing of operas, and almost all of my compositions have a kind of theatrical motivated dramaturgy, sometimes fairly complex. The realization of the intentions and the merging of the different aspects have had varying successes (seeing them in retrospect).
