I won awarness and interest for conteporary music during my Erasmus exchange in Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon where I was studing with one of the most remarkable proffesor for percussion Art:
Jean Geoffroy – an brilliant interpreter of works by J.S.Bach and an breath-taking performer of contemporary works for percussion.
He introduced me to modern music and from there on I completly changed my approach to percussion. and I get immensly inspired of the open mind thinking, brilliant curiousity of finding new ways to express music, research sound, composition, performance techniques and concepts based works.
Since there on I was lucky to work with different composers among the others with Wojtek Blecharz, Marta Gentilucci, Symon Henry, Remmy Canedo and execute contemporary music in Festivals like Dni Muzyki Nowej in Poland, Novalis Festival in Croatia, Darmstadt, Eclat Festival, ZKM Karlsruhe, Hallische Musik Tage, TonART Festival in Germany etc.
My focus lies on the solo works for percussion with live electronics, performance and interdisciplinary interaction.
Biggest inspiration came from my teachers Jean Geoffroy, Marta Klimasara and Klaus Dreher and still growing through artist like a.o. :
Alvin Lucier, John Cage, Vinko Globokar, Wojtek Blecharz, Jagoda Szmytka, Simeon Ten Holt, Theo Jansen, Janet Echelman, Anthony Howe, Björk, Grzegorz Bral
