Start Again The Lament

As a sound designer, I helped artist Taryn Simon realize her extensive sound installation "Start Again The Lament" in the Cisternerne Copenhagen. Performed by professional mourners, the work explores how people mourn individually and collectively, considering the anatomy of grief and whom we choose to guide us through it. These sonic rituals of loss and discontent—including northern Albanian, Wayuu, Greek Epirotic, and Yazidi laments—transform the exhibition space into an instrument echoing recitations with a reverberation of seventeen seconds.


Schubert's "swan song" as music-theatre at the Armory Hall in NYC, conceived and directed by Claus Guth, with tenor Jonas Kaufmann and pianist Helmut Deutsch. I have contributed musical interludes and sound compositions that link the songs into one long experience.

Hopium Machina Vision

For this high-end hydrogen-powered vehicle, I developed an information-driven sound concept for the user interface and an immersive sound installation for the booth at the Paris Mondial d'Auto 2022, where the unveiling of this innovative automobile caused quite a stir.

Lure – a music-theatrical exploration of AI

Lure is an artistic research project I lead that explores machine learning in theater and music. We have explored a variety of machine learning techniques in combination with musical instruments, voice and narration. The artistic research transfers questions on the topics of human–machine interaction and artificial intelligence to the fields of theatre and music.

4 Quiet Pieces for Accordion in Just Intonation

The just intonation differs clearly from the usual equal temperament in its sound but also in its practicability. On this accordion a third C-E sounds clear and free from beating, while the third B-D, for example, sounds totally sloped and crooked. This offers not only the possibility of playing particularly pure sounds, but also, in a particularly charming way, to play wonderfully iridescently "wrong". This "wrong sounding" is not the result of a randomly detuned accordion, but is determined in an audibly conscious and concrete way.

Small Places

As part of the RE:ECM exhibition at Storage by Hyundai Card in Seoul, Korea, my piece “Small Places” presents the entire music catalogue ever produced by ECM Records as a sound installation. It is inspired by the game of ping-pong which can be regarded as a metaphor for many aspects in music production: the interaction between producer and musician(s), the give and take between the musicians themselves, but also the active interplay between the listener and the music.

Follow me



Created in collaboration with digital artist Lars Ullrich, "Flow" lets the visitor experience the motion inside the music. By creating an abstract landscape from the music, the visitor can explore its fluid dynamics and be part of its organic behavior: The listener is literally drawn into the music. "Flow" is part of the RE:ECM exhibition at Storage by Hyundai Card, Seoul, 2019.


The pedestrian zone in front of the Kunsthalle Munich: There, a homeless person appears in the midst of lustfully shopping, well dressed people. In the hopelessness of her existence, she transfigures everything ordinary into art. Sounds from her memory fit into an orchestration of the urban sound space. Everything she hears becomes a global song in which, like Wagner's Isolde, she finds redemption through death and resurrection in love.

Inside MPhil – Frühling (spring)

With the free app "INSIDE MPHIL - Frühling" (spring) you can experience the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra virtually on a meadow of your choice as if the musicians were set up there. With the GPS-connected smartphone and headphones you enter the orchestra acoustically and hear the instruments as if you were standing next to them, just as the musicians hear themselves and their colleagues. This is made possible by the sophisticated smartphone app.
