MUSIC • SOUND ART
Sound art exploring natural and artificial environments
Composing & live Performances
I like to work with an interdisciplinary approach and experiment with sounds using field recordings, editing software and musical instruments. I am interested in our environment and technology and how we get affected by it. Travelling and living in different countries and circumstances has strongly influenced my perspective. Water, underwatersounds, migration and freedom are reoccuring subjects in my work.
The interactive audio-visual jellyfish installation is a sound art project, where I turned the touch of water into an instrument. I play guitar, use voice, synth and other instruments to express stories. I collaborate with Another Son Leaving in the band Deasil and Withershins.
As a solo performer i work with Ableton Live and I mix field recordings into soundscapes.
