COMPOSITIONS

cover a large spectre, from conventional writing for chamber orchestra to grafic scores. They use a vaste range of instruments and sounding objects. Hand cranked music boxes, glas harp, melodica, hair dryer, egg slicer, adhesive tape, etc...The compositions integrate often recordings, played on old tape recorders or smartphones, which are to be considered and used like other instruments.


SOUNDSCAPES

are combining recordings of music, voices and sounds. Autonomous as in radio dramas or integrated in music theater plays, theater and dance plays, performances or videos, they build a solid base to various experimental projects, whose construction depends partly on sound.


FIELD RECORDINGS

Recordings realised in special contexts and environements, encontered in Switzerland or abroad. They capture unique acoustic particularities of one place at one moment.
