Three new solo albums!


I’m very happy to announce that my solo music trilogy

The Poetics of a Multiphonic Landscape will be released on Friday 19th of February.

Although I have played numerous solo concerts internationally, this is the first time my solo playing is documented on record.


The Poetics of a Multiphonic Landscape consist of the albums:




Listen to them here:

“The three albums are the result of an artistic research project into the complex and captivating possibilities of the saxophone to produce multiple sonics simultaneously (multiphonics) and to unfold the possible poetics of these within the acoustic solo format. The main question I have been asking myself in this process was: 

‘What happens if the raw musical material, in the creation of a set of solo saxophone works, is based on the multiphonics only and what this material in itself suggest – unconcerned by any stylistic affiliation?’ 

This led me to use underwater soundscapes as an inspiration for my acoustic explorations, an increased awareness of the complex multiple sonic’s intrinsic worth, and furthermore to make use of a hybrid instrument called ‘reed trumpet’. Experienced at the intersection of free improvisation and compositional praxis, these albums are further enriched through their deep immersion in extended techniques and subtle textural sonics.”
