Born in 1977 in Rosenheim/Bavaria, surrounded by woods and meadows; started music from the age of 8 on homemade drums and tennis racket guitar imitations: dreams of a rock star career. After several semi-successful student band projects, he disovered the multi-track recording in 1995; in 4 years he produced approximately 60 tapes with mostly Songs, but also the first film score.
Moved to Vienna in 1999; digital apprentice at Georg Luksch; switch to the computer as a recording center, space-related reduction to synthetic sounds, guitars and vocals; 2 soundtracks were written ("parasites" in 2001 and "visions" in 2002), plus theater and ballet music ("tutto casa, letto, chiesa" in 2002, "billiard" in 2003), from 2003 again increased band projects, including Frauen&&Technik, Kruger and especially coco, which emerged from the performance duo Amber and Gold.
With coco several musical ground breaking performances were completed in the broad field of performance art, eg wrapped in aluminum, scoring football games or opening parties.


In 2007 he completed his studies in musicology and graduated with distinction.
In April 2008 the 24-audio performance efemer premiered in Krems at the Danube Festival. Planning and implementation of other similarly structured projects in 2009 and 2010, including a critical Haydn and Mahler tribute.
