Here you'll find recordings of my notated compositions, solo experimental folk performances and collaborative improvisations. Most of the compositions are understated and intimate, for one to four players and informed by international folk traditions and medieval music theory. The collaborative improvisations range from gentle standstill to harsh unhinged energy.
