Improvisation

Capturing moods, breaking and recreating them is a main issue of improvisation. The space and the moment of the performance influence the decision taken by the musician.

I improvise in solo performances, in trios and also in one-time encounters.

In my improvisations I play with my own field recordings only. A prepared live-set with samples is the base. On this I process, mix, arrange in real-time.

The process of change by playing in constant formations is as interesting for me as to meet people just before entering the stage and have a unique chance to play together.

Especially on travels I recognise this possibility as a different way to get in contact with other artists and the culture.

I improvise with musicians of different genres (jazz, contemporary music, free improvisers, ambient, noise) as well as sound artists (circuit bending, found sounds, field recording, computer generated and modulated sounds).
