Music has always accompanied me as an inner moment that I try to express to the outside world. All my studies and research have enabled me to make audible, what has always been there.
I gathered experience by being involved with many different styles and kinds of music and playing in various ensembles and bands
My studies were not limited to jazz or classical music, but had always been my motivation to create my own sound and find my personal musical language beyond stylistic borders.
