Percussion, Improvisation, Performances, Composition

 
 

Born 1956, working since 1978 as free-lancing percussionst on improvised / composed New Music, sound art and performance. Activities in Germany and abroad.

Constant development of individual musical idioms focusing sound besides rhythm, especially the extension of techniques and instrumentation.

Solo / duo / ensemble / orchestral work; participation in projects based on intermediary concepts (dance / theatre / fine arts etc ), increasingly refering to space; emphasis of synaesthetical impacts.
