Started playing the saxophone in 1976 and studied music in 1979 at first in Vienna, later on in Cologne. Apart from the soprano, the tenor and the baritone saxophones, the bass clarinet is one of his instruments. He puts his emphasis of work on Improvised music, preferably in ensembles that work continuously, such as 'A.Q.T R.Z.', 'URL', Ensemble 2 INQ and Duos with Martin Theurer, Hans Tammen and Philippe Micol. He collaborates with artists, dancers and actors, founder in charge of the sub-label 'Improvisers´ Series' of NURNICHTNUR publishing company for the arts and productions.
Besides his musical works he is engaged in cultural politics: He was a former member of the 'Kölner Jazzhaus Initiative (Stadtgarten)'. Ten years ago he founded together with Paul Hubweber the 'AIM e.V.', an association for Improvised Music.
