ABOUT ME

 

I just finished my master dissertation about water in sound art. I like to work with an interdisciplinary approach and experiment with sounds. Classically trained on the clarinet over time the guitar and voice became more important to express the stories I like to tell with my music. Recently I have started to work in the area of sound art and I love that it combines the visual and sonic arts. The interactive audio-visual jellyfish installation has been the most extensive sound art project, so far.
