Traffic Orchestra In close cooperation with musicians, the music performance pieces are composed to incorporate traffic noise as an instrument – to see if we able to understand our noise surrounding as music.

The aesthetics of heritage The ‘aesthetics of heritage’ plays with the original use of the voice and a communication without human language; investigating the natural and sophisticated voice control and trying to teach one to mimic the other. The Czechoslovakian wolfdog is a breed between German Shepard and wolf that, in experiment of the army […]
Von Mustern, die sich erzählen (Of patterns narrating themselves) Thousands of threads are pulled over the stretched blankets and with the aid of a motor mechanism dozens are constantly moving, rubbing against the fabric. A soft sound is created. The materiality of the threads as well as their run are reflecting the social-historical context of […]

The site specific piece took place on three levels of the monument – for which I developed the spatial and sonic design.Throughout the monument five videos are […]
Soft Power: Brushes With the help of motors, the objects rotate in different rhythms. The friction of the various special cleaning materials on the wall creates different noises and leaves circular traces of dirt. The sound, or rather the movement, of all the objects is programmed in interaction and appears partly random, partly musical or […]
glatt, glatt, glatt Fishing lines of various thicknesses are stretched on metal frames. With the help of a small motor, a reed rotates on the entire back of the frame and plucks the strings. The sound varies in the different objects and is related to the thickness of the fishing lines, their arrangement and […]

Sonic City Gym Various objects in public spaces are repurposed as instruments. Specific harnesses and body straps are made for each location, allowing the performer to execute classical physical fitness exercises, move/lift/push objects (such as manhole covers), and create sound rhythms. Videos were previously recorded at the same location and then projected onto the […]
. . Soft Power: Neighbours Some of the 70 carpet rolls are driven by motors. The pressure of the surrounding rolls causes the other rolls to start spinning as well. The speed of the rotation depends on the proximity, stability and movement of the neighbouring rolls.The friction of the different materials against each other […]
