OccupationComposer, Singer
CategoriesClassical, Contemporary, Electronic, Other

I am an active composer of modern classical music for instruments, voices and electronics. Previously I often collaborated in bringing music together with other mediums, such as theater, movement and visual art. However, in the last 10 years, I have become increasingly interested in complexity and the practical application of physical and perceptual models. My compositions have received international recognition, including the important German award, the Kompositionspreis der Landeshauptstadt Stuttgart 2007. My music has been performed by artists such as Stefan Östersjö, Kairos String Quartet, Ensemble Ars Nova, Matthias Bauer, Stockholm Saxophone Quartet, Gary Verkade, Angela Rademacher, Timo Kinnunen, Almut Kühne, Works-in-Progress Ensemble, Chatschatur Kanajan, Quartet New Generation, Jeffrey Burns. I am also an active researcher of voice, acoustics and perception and am regularly invited to deliver guest lectures. My work with the extra-normal voice is internationally known through performances, journal publications and a book, The 21st Century Voice.
