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.
I play with water, environmental sounds, guitar, use voice, synth and other instruments to create atmospheric experimental music. Humans and non-humans, their co- existence as well as the body-mind cooperation and languages are an important foucs in my work.
