"In my playing i always seek to catch the essence of what is to be said and translate it into sound and pulse, untamed but always focused on my roll in the band-context as a bassist. Composing film-music and producing films for music is also a great passion of mine. This and the ability to forget everything and just play, gives me joy and sense. "

About silentmovie music:
" I'm trying to bring the historic material of film and music into a contemporary context - in a mixture between composition, improvisation and also interpretation of music, that was en vogue in the time when the film was produced. Every film 'needs' and 'deserves' a different sound, a different instrumentation, different style....it's such a pleasure to seek and discover that unique sound for each film! "

2. Du sollst Körper & Geist lieben & ehren.
3. Du sollst niemals mit dem Kontrabass unterm Arm der Bim nachrennen.
° DER GOTT DES HEIDITUMS °

Sofern er nicht gerade den Kater krault
oder den Atlantik betrachtet.
