Welcome to my website!

Hello, welcome to my website and BLOG! For the last several decades I have been focusing on contemporary music practices and the poetics of interpretation. Lately I have been exploring electronic composition with fixed media, live processing and, very recently, machine learning algorithms. Currently, I am external artist consultant in AI-based creative and performance practices for the research group “Creatie” at the Royal Academy in Antwerp, flutist of the Cologne-based Ensemble Musikfabrik, coach for our youth ensemble Studio Musikfabrik and the European Contemporary Music Workshop (Warsaw), guest faculty for the Lucerne Festival Academy, and guest professor for the academic years 2022 – 2024 at the Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music in Riga
