I am a composer. Metaphorical transformations of extra-musical contents and models are a constant in my compositional work. I consciously seek the intermedial friction associated with these transformations. Thus, for example, elements from haptics, spatiality or kinetics, but also psychological, socio-political and linguistic phenomena, are key issues in my work concepts and language has a powerful role when I work with them. Alongside conceptual questions, however, there is always a clear commitment to the sensual in music - to all that can only be experienced by hearing, performing or showing. Decisive new impulses for my work have recently come from two different perspectives: my involvement with computer-assisted composing methods and sound synthesis as well as the collaborative work with the artist Valentina Pini. Her playful and highly intelligent visual language, often related to alchemy and magic, is very inspiring and reflecting upon the materials, notion of space and more generally about concepts of visual art has influenced my artistic perception and thinking.
