The solo improvisation performance is without doubt the ultimate personal statement for me. It's driven by an inner urgency for sharing with the audience the collective immersion into sound. A probing search and investigation lies at the very heart of the performance as it transforms organically into new shapes every so often.
For a longer time now I've been exploring the violin's diverse sound capacities while simultaneously weaving in my own voice. I get inspiration from the nature, the oldest Chinese book of oracles "I -Ging" and from my wide musical background. What emerges are sounds reverberating around a complex tension that defy any simple categorization. In May 2018 I released a first solo album "Elements and Songs" with Veto Records and played over 30 concerts in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Skandinavia.

Next spring I’ll work on new music. This material will include electronic effects and sampling.
