“Insubordinately Sublime” -Inigo Wilkins about recent concerts
Here you find songs, sounds and radiofeatures I arrange and produce myself and some I speak and sing for. Situated between postindustrial, sonic jokes and experimental pop-punk.
***NEW ALBUM OUT: https://jcdecaux.bandcamp.com/album/watch-close ***
I am an artist living and working between London and Berlin and on tour.
Studied post-dramatic theatre and theory/phillosophy: at ATW Gießen by Heiner Goebbels, Felix Kubin u.o. and contemporary dance&choreography at CNSMD Lyon.
I love words and sounds, write for theater and run a theater company putting up music performances. I work with electronic and analog sounds, homemade instruments, voice(s) and fieldrecording. I direct contemporary classical concerts, live radioplays, music for theater and soundinstallations.
Here on soundcloud you can find some tracks, sketches and experiments.
When you click on the songtitles you can see more infos about the pieces.
below are links to CV etc. feel free to have a look around, see you in real life.

about the recent album:
picadilly records writes: "...sounding a little like an Eccentronic Research Council meets Raymond Scott’s Mahattan Research Inc meets Cluster, this is a collection of poetry, electronics and improvisation woven together like a tapestry and drawing you in like a tense but beautifully shot thriller. Clangers-esque theramin sine tones, ethnic percussion, multi-lingual poetry, mangled strings – a plethora of idents from an all manner of subversive stylings. This is brilliant!"
boomcat writes: "...blur the lines between poetry and tone poem, with Manchester’s answer to Peter Pan coaxing out a gauzy spectrum of eccentric small sounds, lopped beats and radiophonic quarks.."
In 2016 my work was played at Tilde Festival for soundart Melbourne, Radio NY, live concert&interview on BBC Wales, concerts at Oriel-Sycharth Wales, New River Studios London, The Others London, Sonic Arts Forum London, Radio futuresound.fm.
On 13.Mai 2017 speaking at Focus Wales Festival 14.30-13.30 // Digital Innovations Day: Panel 3: THE SPACE RACE: How embracing the digital revolution can give you the edge
