Winterreise oder Stationen einer Flucht

Winterreise was a combination of Schubert’s haunting music, played live onstage, and playback transitions that I created. The goal was to bring a modern flair to the Winterreise without compromising the beauty of the original.

The Little Great People

TLGP was a sequence of 3 duets, all with different themes and feelings. We worked with the ideas of polarity, reflectings and absorbing, nature, and social interaction.

 A lot of the music was created by manipulating a single recording of a voice and the sounds happening in the environment around the recording. Also text and remixes of works by Beethoven and Ludovico Einaudi.

Blue Fields

Blue Fields was the album I created out of the music made for a short film called “Garden of Others”. It is a combination of modern orchestral music and sound design.

A Tale Of Impermanence

This work was based on the concepts of death and the recognition of the impermanence of life. Life is fleeting and the death of a loved one moved the choreographer to create this work with NDT2 to honor his life.

Using manipulations of text and voice mixed with more traditional orchestral elements and found sounds.

Nous (which means mind or reason) was a dance work about the inner struggles of the human mind. The inter and intrapersonal fights or storms we have to walk into every now and then to progress and survive. It surrounded the audience in 6 channel surround sound.

” And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over but one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm is all about” –  Haruki Murakami
