What makes artistic collaboration work?
A common goal, comparable knowledge, experience and skill, mutual respect, the ability to listen to your colleague and good communication skills.
How important is the context, in which your perform, to you?
As a performer the relationship with my audience is very important to me. Therefore, I strive to develop a concert and a concert’s aura by taking into consideration the artistic context, the venue itself and of course the audience that I expect to come as well as the audience which I would like to reach with my program.
Is music science? Why (not)?
To me art in itself is not science. However, it was enriching for me as an artist to develop a deep connection between art and science. This connection I enjoy exploring in my artistic-research endeavours and my everyday artistic practice.
