Born in 1958 in Würzburg, Germany, now I live in Switzerland.
Making music for me is a never-ending meditation and exercise in creativity and self – development.
It opens doors from inside to outside and the other way around.
Most of the times it speaks for itself…
The instruments I play are the drums and the hammered dulcimer.
The hammered dulcimer is also called „Appenzeller Hackbrett“.
There are groups where I play only the drums, others, where I play only the hammered dulcimer and in some I play the both of them.
As You might see and hear in the following I am attracted to and inspired by rather various kinds of music with a lot of odd and folkish ingredients.
In different groups, projects, productions with different musicians and artists from different angles I combine these influences.
Beyond that I`m active as composer and conceptor.
In 2016 I was awarded the Kulturpreis of the „Bürgi – Willert – Stiftung“ .
