"highly creative composer by liberating musical constraints yet still keeping his works aurally pleasurable"

- Kelly O'Neil (review Works for Piano)

Composed music

Composed pieces written for solo instruments, duo ensembles, chamber and vocal groups and orchestras.

I started to begin writing dots on paper from around 1996, the first are very experimental and short, wild etudes and usually try-outs (meaning: usually I didn't know what they would sound like!).

From 2005 untill 2007 I was in a very creative period and started to write the opposite;

very slow and long (at least longer than my first pieces), with the focus on the piano with usually violin and/or cello, and occassionally a voice or flute. I started to write a lot of unfinished works... Just recently I'v started to finish these works from the previous period as well as write and complete new works for different instrumentation. 

Below is a list of finished as well as unfinished works.
