- Tell about your first musical steps and what led you to minimalism?
Actually I wouldn't necessarily describe my music or aesthetic as "minimalism". I am interested in detail and precision and am fascinated by small movements and slow changes (which you could maybe describe with the word "minimalism"). For me the word minimalism always in itself carries some negative aspect, as it also describes an approach of doing as little as needed to create or do something.
I have been interested in music already at a very young age. For hours I have been listening to the radio during the evening while staring at the blinking lights of the equalizer in the stereo. When I was around the age of ten I started to actually buy records (at that time mostly vinyl) and tapes and was always searching for new music and interesting bands. In my search for I have gone through several phases (new wave, industrial, heavy metal, alternative, electronic) and I believe that each of the musical phase has left a small trace or particle in the music I am creating.
