Below a selection of several of my compositions. Writing music is my passion. Compositions for small and large ensembles, varying from solo instruments to full orchestra and/or choir, but also music/sound collages.
Composed after reading about the horrible truth of daily life in Camp Auschwitz
The absence of a clear first beat makes the music sound timeless / endless. Sober melodic lines and dark orchestration bring out disparity. But also moments of hope and light before it all fades away.
Intro for 'Hope has a voice'
Composed for a remembrance day concert (may 4th 2013). It's a compilation of speeches from war leaders (Churchill, Chamberlain, Goebels, Hitler). By adding speeches of Bush sr. and Bush jr. I tried to span WW II and present day wars. The piece accumulates in an massive outburst of war rhetorics and leaves the listener with a feeling of unease. The piece was originally followed by a cello solo and a motet by Aaron Copland (Have mercy on us, O my Lord).
