Description of Style

Maybe it's a stoic undertaking that the composer has taken on ​​ by striving to achieve a balanced unity of reason and feeling in his music. It is for him but a goal from which he will not turn away. For a music which emphasizes the rational, calculating construction of tones, misses as much as music which mainly resonates waves of emotion. Therefore, the composer in his recent works attempted to reach the center of reason and emotion. Linked to this is the renouncement of any showmanship, the greatest possible abstinence of complexity to be able to what lies behind the music with deliberately chosen simplicity in a cöear and truefulm way. For him there is in principle no commandments and prohibitions, although he imposes upon himself certain laws, but those can be broken at any time when he feels like it or it does make reason to him. All compositional techniques (counterpoint, different harmonic sound structures, poly-tonality, poly-rhythms, aleatoric music, etc.) can be used in a free-tonal way, at the same time making it very important that the compositional differences merge into unity. Moreover,  hsi music does not represent any violent search for novelties nor does it stand for any forced high elevation to a (alleged) art music. But it is certainly a music the composer uses to express something which is beyond of the abovementioned idea, he uses to communicate with others. To him, music is a language, that is why in spite of all individuality he would not want to select a way of expression, other people might not be able to understand (figuratively spoken).
