Here you find an overview about my compositional work. To listen in clips please click on the icon in the table. Left you can download some complete pieces. If you would like to get CDs or scores of my works please contact me by an e-mail.

Short information about me: Born *1962 in Krefeld, Germany. After studies first I worked for some years as photographer and graphic designer in Cologne. Later I became an art and managing director in an advertising agency, before, in 2002, I have completely concentrated on the music, music composing and producing. – Today I am living as free composer in Frechen, near by Cologne.

My compositional ideal is an absolute, multilayeredly associative contemporary classical music, a melody, rhythm and sound esthetics which have immediately to understand and to feel when hearing constructively, without use any further instructions or manuals.
