projects & composition



Silence – live und in Farbe

improvised and modern music is being planned to take place in Kulturzentrum Dieselstrasse near Stuttgart, – collaboration with other professions like dance and film. I am pleased to form a new ensemble projekt with drummer and vibraphonist Daniel Kartmann and pianist Hsiao-Feng Chang. More info very soon..


Composition project in Essen.

– Yeah! From June –  September I am doing a big research project concerning improvised music styles and science. – There will be fotos and announcements of performances very soon! Thx to a scholarship by e.c.c.e called „Individuelle künstlerische Entwicklung“ for my compositional ideas.


Gruppe Moment

is a unique ensemble based in Rhein/Ruhr area. We play a mixed programm of improvised and composed music as a performance with modern dance. – Every note is a move. Composed chamber music elements are played alongside with improvisation.

very minimal soundpainting improvisations audio/visual trio.
Christoph and me play together since we are teenagers, he and Stefan started working together while studying in Amsterdam. We follow a improv dramaturgy with the help of cards, but what happens as an iteraction between light and sound is always an additional layer. Some concert documentations for Olgar as a trio exists, please send me a mail for further infos!

Die Letzte Derniere
improvisations on „abstract scores“ in a group process on pieces of composers we like (such as K.Huber, R.Saunders, G.Scelsi, J.Cage, S.Scodanibbio, M.Feldman) in order to search for  the difference between improv and composition in a live context.

Nora Krahl – vcl, Sidney Corbett – git, Daniela Petry – kontrabass, Matthias Bauer/ Margarethe Meierhofer-Lischka – kontrabass, Jason Levis – dr/perc
