parallel to his studies which lead him more to composition and works for films, he investigated the possibilities to improvise. he started to improvise in 2000 trying to use his computer, during this time he was not really satisfied with the way of controlling a computer. In 2006 inspired by works of lee kwang goh and robin minard he found a way to use an electronic setup as an instrument. a combination of piecoelectric contact microphones and speakers. the instrument is based on the feedback between the microphones and the speakers. this instrument caught his interest because he don’t need to formalize the controlling parameters. it is a unstable system which allows him to play in an indirect way. the goal is not to control a technical aperture but to create an associative field. he cooperated with musicians like christoph irmer, lee kwang goh, tim blechmann, mattin, ignaz schick, marcel tuerkowski, bernd haepfner, shingo inao and seiji morimoto. he played concerts mostly in berlin, he has visit vienna, seoul, leipzig. His compositions where played in berlin, essen, karlsruhe, koeln and weimar. the collaboration with lee kwang goh which had a major influence on his improvisation is documented on a cdr released on the label: herbal international live action. the cd tropoi developed under the influence of the improvisation its sounds are improvised but the transformed afterwards. his last composition (“hoffnungstraeger”) lead him to questions of form in electroacustic concert music.
currently he work again on a computer based instrument. the interface of a computer lead him to questions of categorization of sounds or more general to the question of thinking sounds as continuous stream or as distinct elements (in a set of possibilities).
