Music, being as abstract as it is, hard to approach, hard to recall, offers unlimited possibilities to combine and to create.

My initial compositorical ideas could at times be as well rhythmical, geometrical, melodical, harmonical, scientific (like permutations or applying self made systems to my music) or simply emotional.

I always try to write music that I have not heard yet, but would like to listen to.

Starting to write music around the age of ten, I have written for numerous lineups for the years, from solo-pieces to big band music, from small electronical combos to large string ensembles, I have written and arranged for numerous bands in the past.

My own projects include Polyhedron, a jazz quartet I founded during my time at the jazz school such as CHINZILLA, a more electronic combo first consisting of three musicians that merged into a solo project, sometimes joined by drummer Jim Black as EmC Splinter. The newest ensemble I founded, that only plays music I have written is the international dectet LAVA BEAM.

Besides my own groups, music I have written music for the following ensembles (amongst others): Fanfare Balkanique Illimitée - FBI, Brassmaster Flash, Frauen-Jazz-Orchester Tirol, Uptown Big Band
