Various documentary CDs, a.o. of the “Darmstaedter Ferienkurse” 1998 and the “Dresdner Tage für zeitgenoessische Musik” 1999/2000.

Among my most recent activites have been two mutual performances with the Salzburg based visual artist Astrid Rieder. We created two "compositions graphiques", the first one together with Claudius von Wrochem (violoncello), the second one just the two of us. You can watch parts of the first creation (Oct. 12, 2016 in Astrid's studio in Salzburg) on the quartet's vimeo channel or the full version on Astrid's youtube channel. Parts of the second performance (Oct. 13, 2018 in Astrid's studio in Salzburg) have not been published yet.
