In 2021 I got a scholarship from the German institution “Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg” for my project “Spotlight Single Bass”. During a period of four months I created a new repertoire for Double Bass and Electric Bass as solo instruments.

Das Projekt wurde gefördert durch ein Stipendium des Ministeriums für
Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg.


1) “Spring will come” – Own Composition

This own composition was inspired by the rough and hypnotic music of Robert Johnson.


2) “Pictures of a City” – King Crimson

This song is honouring one of my all time favourite bands, who is also one of the reasons I became a musician: King Crimson.


3) “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” – Skip James

With its hypnotic guitar riffs this song by Skip James always fascinated me. The electric bass pays tribute to its grim character.


4)”Nunc Stans” – Own Composition

This song  is based on a widely ranged experiment with the chordal possibilities of the electric bass.

Microtonal Polyphony around the world

Musikfond e.V. and the German program “Neustart Kultur” granted me a wonderful scholarship for the time-period between January and June 2021.
My funded project had a topic that is strongly connected to my work since a long time: to create intercultural music which central characteristic is not the combination of the contrasts between the different music cultures but to create music where it's about treating both musical cultures as equal forms of expression – with a lot of respect for each other and deep knowledge about both musical cultures. The result is music that goes beyond the categories of Orient and Occident.
