born 8/11/1954 near Bielefeld, grew up in Wetter/Ruhr, now lives in Witten/Ruhr
By the age of 19 he was a member of a Free Jazz Group from Dortmund/Witten, and established first contacts with the Wuppertal Scene (Peter Kowald) followed by contacts to the Leverkusen/Aachen Scene (Paul Lovens/Erhard Hirt).
In the beginning his music was mainly influenced by Free Jazz.
But soon he developed his own characteristic piano style, extensively
using 'inside piano' techniques. This now relates rather to English 'Free
Music' and sounds more like 'Neue Musik'. He conducted his own groups
with members like Paul Lovens and Evan Parker and recorded in Berlin with
FMP. Now he publishes with his own label 'happy few records' with Erhard
Hirt, Paul Hubweber, Thomas Lehn and others.
