Stilbeschreibung

Stylistically hovering between jazz and classical, searching organised correlations and refreshing points of friction. Inherent in her personality is a strong need for harmony, which has occasional odd accents or conscious breaks. Text and language are an important element, often used as inspiration or as a basis for compositions. Since I am also a singer, many of the pieces are for vocals.
