I started playing music when I was fourteen, after hitch-hiking to the next bigger city and buying a pair of bongos. Increasing my percussion set, I had my first groups. After school I worked in a studio for photography in Cologne. At the same time I got more and more interested in improvised and experimental music. As a member of the artist group 'Heinrich Mucken', founded in 1982, I got involved in site specific art projects. I studied art in Cologne and Visual Communication in Kassel(MA). My visual interest shifted towards the use of light in three dimensional spaces. Now I am living in Berlin, working as musician and visual artist.
