In 2010 the long-desired letter from Hogwarts arrived, telling me I was accepted at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry… er… the music department of Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (CH) (with a small castle-like building on the hill of Dreilinden). I have rapidly become an outsider, as I started to get interested in the Dark Arts – contemporary classical music. In 2017 the Sorting Hat sent me to the International Ensemble Modern Academy in Frankfurt (DE) where I finally found my House. If I do not practice I probably sit in my office conducting research about music practice rooms, contemporary music notation, artificial intelligence, or gratitude. In private life, I am a passionate collector and reader of books. My biggest dream would be to have my own library full of fantastic books.
