Performance

Born and raised in the countrified landscapes of the North-West of Germany, I early got in contact with the local long tradition of brass music. Nearly every commune has its own brass orchestra that plays during the church services. Furthermore the so called hand-made Middewinterhörner, long horns made from wood, are played during the days of winter. In addition to that it exists a hunting tradition as well. A hunt opens and ends with a signal played by a horn. This inspired me to compose my own hunting signals. An art exhibition and a hunt are in a way both cultural ceremonies. So I decided to create small hunting signal based compositions for exhibitions I take part of. The piece is played live by me during the opening and the closing of the exhibition.
