May 2021
unfortunately concerts scheduled for end of may had to be postponed and
rescheduled again. feels like i am getting some routine in this work.
watch out for new dates in my agenda.

also working on my new acousmatic project 'Streifzüge' for which i am
collecting field recordings whilst strolling through my home town Cologne.
even 'caught' the song of a nightingale one early morning.
!amazing sounds! to which you might listen here: Nightingale
but i am still not sure, if it will find a place in the composition.
