Degree in musicology 2008
Degree in filmscoring 2017
I inherited an old backpack. In it, I filled 33 years of sound and other scrap. During my study in film music composition in 2016-17, I finally emptied and repacked it.
Now I am proud of the remaining content and on my way to the mountains.

The sound of the future is constantly evolving. My contribution is essentially not in the classical orchestration and use of the established, but in the quest for something new / forgotten and rewarding. I mainly work with an intention that sound is pure energy with unknown potential. Humans all the way down to an atomic level and everything else in nature is in constant motion and vibration. I believe sound is the easiest tool we have to influence these small movements. How its done and what’s actually happening is art by accident when we feel it. What we know is sound is mass being moved.
About music and the craft, I have two jobs.
Sound for others
is mainly focusing on film music. I love to make sound to picture, create emotions, lead/confuse viewers and to tell stories. The complexity and at the same time light and intuitive. The psychological impact of the music and the power of the sound itself. It is rewarding and challenging to tell the parts of the movie - which it is unable to tell by it self.
Sound for me
is an interdisciplinary concept where I make things I consider good for us. Essentially, it has resulted in music for our mind and health. «Breathing music» is a concept I developed a long time ago. Now it is used by both top athletes, yoga centers and others who need a tool to master everyday life. This makes sense for me, and I feel that I am giving something back to the world.
My vision is to find the meaning of sound, and in unattainable visions; it is the prosess that’s interesting.
