“After playing and touring as an electronic Pop-Duo Milch with Armin von Milch since the late 90’s, I began in 2002 composing music for theater and dance scores in Germany, Poland and Austria. Close collaborations with visual artists followed.In my compositions for theater I often use field recordings, generate sounds through found material and mix them with voices and analog instruments.”Another project was Arises, a nomadic, ever-expanding, transcendental one piece musical-outfit between 2008 and 2013. The music of Arises can be described as a finely tuned exaggeration of pop structures, illustrated by brittle synthesizer landscapes and punctuated by sometimes concussive guitar as well as live snare stabs.
