I work as a composer and live musician performing on guitar and live electronics. I have a broad background as a performing musician in jazz and popular music but more and more switched to interdisciplinary performances and composing.
I am interested in collaborations with contemporary dance, theater, film and installation work. I also love to work with visual artists (and other musicians of course!)
Below are some examples of my work. Please use headphones or a decent speaker system to listen.
For contemporary dance / performance / theater
