An overwhelming chance to participate in the authentic variety of cultural diversity and feel respect and appreciation for individual values is by getting to know and meet people who can tell stories about their lives which we can understand as part of their own contextual environment and cultural knowledge. Many of the titles in my compositions portray this cultural respect.
Travelling to all five continents I had a chance to exuraperience Music, Literature, Architecture, Art, Landscape and Food in an authentic context. My love to experience notation in composition and my love to dedicate time to learn the manifold sound systems, grammatical issues and forms of notations in different languages is part of my life concerning English, Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Corean, Japanese and Kashmiri.
At the University of Music in Stuttgart, Germany I have been presenting my project „Non-European Music“ since 2002, Traditional Music in Dialogue with Contemporary Music, including the Music from „China, Japan, Corea, India, Persia, Arabic Countries, Bali and Java, Oceania and Australia, Africa, South America, Cuba, und Music along the Silkroad“.
