PIANIST

IMPROVISER

COMPOSER

Inspired by phenomenon of landscapes, I am trying to discover my own musical language through penetration and fathoming visual, multilayered sceneries. Conneting music with synaesthesia, I want to reach unique connection of sound, its colour and time. The best link-symbol to observe the paradox of variability and permanency of landscapes is journey. Earth, physical land, tectonic layers, colours – all these elements connect with spiritual aspect of steadiness and unpredictability. Improvisation, as musical element and technique, symbolizes in my music a wandering through the internal sound landscapes, merging everything into a single, organic whole.
