„Where do beats begin and where does tonality end? You can find the answer in a forest of steel trees composed of resonant bark during a spectral thunderstorm.“
The aim of my research project is the merger of melodic and percussion elements resulting into one conglomeration. Drum sets become more tonal without loosing their characteristic noise-like sound. The ambition is to create entirely new sounds and complex forms driven by beat sequences which can be played via claviature or other pitch controller.
During my scientific doctoral thesis I was driven by a passion to discover something new and to increase the understanding of complex molecular networks. In life sciences, hypothesis often have to be modified due to functional complexity of living things. Experimental results may disprove theoretical assumptions – a novel, surprising thought can appear! My curiosity and excitement of organic/natural complexity as a scientist also emerge as a musician when I perform sound studies.
