ARTIST STATEMENT

I work with electronic music as if I am writing a magic novel. Sometimes it’s the illusion of bliss, sometimes a proper nightmare, always a paradox. Algorithms shape musical ideas into physical and spatial happenings. This concrete machinery is alive and active within the experimental scene in Copenhagen, morphing itself to serve the cause of storytelling through a sonic journey of auditive predominance.
