An unorthodox juxtaposition of the seriousness of European traditions and their modern branches, popular rhythms derived from dance and jazz and an East Asian awareness for timbre and melody make up the main influences of my compositions. Here a selection:

Xiamen Symphony


Collage of sounds of the legendary Chinese treaty port Xiamen. I nostalgically reminsce about my two years there in my new blog entry.


Electric Music for the Manhattan Bridge
Nyfol 2

Raw electonic piece “Aggregate” for a projection showcase by dandelion & burdock at the New York festival of lights.


For Two Violins

Highly contrapunctual yet very introverted piece of epic dimensions, that demands perfect intonation and techinque from its performers.


Film Production Music

Music to a videocompilation by Andreas Giesecke.

Plain Jane

For Voice, Harpsichord, Double Bass, Melodica, Percussion and Recorder

A grotesque story about a girl that learns to stop saying „nay“ the hard way, written in the key of East-German children‘s records.

Salisbury Cathedral

Paper Craft and Music

Since my early childhood I have had a soft spot for hand-made objects made of paper. I also dabble in creating them myself from time to time and have developed a preference for English cathedrals. The music for the video is a compilation of small pieces that were originally commissioned by a museum in Saudi Arabia, in which I first dealt with oud, qanun and maqams.

Broadcast of the Premier Performance of "Gold & Wire"

Quartett for Trumpet, Saxophone, Contrabass Trombone and Piano

A very special Frankonian piece commissioned by the Bavarian broadcast service for its series "Young Philharmonics".
