Some words about me:

I am living in Bonn, where I studied Comparative Literature and Computer Science at the University of Bonn. Currently I earn my money unaffiliated as IT-Consultant (artistic life beyond the mainstream leads to starvation).

I am making music since the age of 14, playing all sorts of keyboards, synthesizers and electronics, alone or in communication with other musicians. I am engaged in a broad spectrum of musical directions and styles (from avant-garde as represented by e.g. Boulez, Haubenstock-Ramati, Henze, Schönberg, Stockhausen, Webern ... over Free Jazz and Jazz Rock as represented by e.g. Cecil Taylor, Joachim Kühn, Paul Bley, Miles Davis, Wheather Report ... to Rock represented by e.g. Frank Zappa, Henry Cow, Soft Machine ...), but with emphasis on improvised music (spontaneous communication acting and re-acting on the edge of moments; generating sound and emotional events while instantly experiencing newly invented structures). I conceive music as being the universe of all possible and imaginable sound events; a concrete song instantiates a selection from this universe either by rules (e.g. blues scheme, harmonic and rhythmic patterns) or by free findings, investigating the fate of coincidence. And it is sure, that no one will ever visit all places in this universe ... which makes life exciting.

I am exploring the Kyma system since 2002, which extends the boundaries every day.

Furthermore my creative propulsion erupts in writing experimental texts. At the present time the only book in print is a poetry book with the title "entgegenwart" (ISBN 978-3831110117).
