As a composer, I concentrate on the nature of sound and its embodiment.

As humans, we respond to human-voice with a primal empathy. An immediate kind of mirroring takes place. We โ€œknowโ€ the tension that is required to produce that sound.

We feel it in our own bodies!

We reflectively react to it at times: โ€ฆsuch as raising our eyebrows when we hear voices in upper-spectra (like a boy-choir), …or clearing our throats after hearing a โ€œscratchyโ€ throat-soundโ€ฆ

I am particularly fascinated by culture-specific vocal practices and traditional vocal-techniques, not only because of their complex acoustical spectra, but also because of how they communicate and convey a wide range of such direct and human experience.

Life vibrates within those sounds!

Such vocal timbres carry information into a singerโ€™s attitude / psychology / type-of-being / (…) — phrases of singing are time-capsules of human-life in acoustics!

I learn from these and translate them into instrumental writing.

I aim to recreate the directness of those human-voices, for ensembles.
