I am the founder and creative director of the SILK::ROAD Festival in Hamburg.

The SILK::ROAD Festival is an arena for the creation of new art forms and seeks artistic engagement with the different regions. Old traditions are interwoven with contemporary, innovative forms of performing arts. Rare folk instruments step out of their cultural space and are presented in a new context.

Installations, concerts and performances enable the recipients to encounter the cultures of the Silk Road in a multicultural, multisensual and multidimensional way and to discover something new. I use classical musical and performing arts forms, which unexpectedly dissolve and condense into new concert experiences. The result is that the object of this installation is not the only music but the relationship between musicians, musicians and listeners, musicians and the performance itself.  

The musical worlds outside Europe, foreign cultures and the functioning of non-European music systems are the source of my research and curatorial work. 

As a composer, I seek to incorporate new techniques and sound worlds into my musical compositions and concert dramaturgy. I study local rituals of various local peoples and processes my findings in new compositions, pursuing the goal of creating connections between contemporary, classical and traditional music. 

The focus of my work is on music as an artistic expression, with visual, auditory, haptic, olfactory and taste elements complementing the works as a synaesthetic connection. Through their own reception, the audience often takes on an actively participating role.
