How important is the context, in which your work is performed, to you?
Which sound is special for you?
In my work I focus on composing relationships between everyday objects, human performers and sound. I like to work with live electronics and create a musical performance that incorporates the surrounding space. Sonic transitions, in which sounds develop from one state to another, are important for me to develop an expansion of sonic connotations. I am interested in setting my gestures into unusual and surprising relationships with sounds, mainly by electronic means. The result could be called “performative sound art”, since it combines elements from performance art, electronic music and visual arts. The sounds themselves develop out of this context: during the performance, slowly, the sounds of music stands become audible, the guitar starts to play the living room, and voices from the outside enter.
