During the last 20 years, I/ we researched in various Duos and Ensembles at the interface of composed and improvised music. Acoustic and electronic sounds, noises and spoken language were treated as equivalent abstract musical materials.
For this purpose, I developed during the years various instrumental setups.
Since 2009, the sound-materials which I used in various groups were more and more influenced by compositions and solo-pieces, I worked on parallel: often, I varied previous elaborated musical elements within different contexts.
On the other hand, I processed some originally for ensemble-pieces developed material in my compositions and solo-pieces.
