Item details

  • Description +
    • As a percussionist I have always been fascinated by discovering as many different tone colors in each instrument as possible. In this case, using just my own body as the instrument was a difficult, but inspiring challenge. The first step was to find the right colors for my "paint box“. All sounds flow into the color palette used to create my music.
      Performing as a percussionist is a very physical experience and therefore has a great overlapping with the art of dance. Creating sounds and expressing music through movement with nothing more than one's own body is a very pure way of performing where music and dance come very close together.
      It’s a very intimate and almost meditative work.
