Shortlisted for Soundwalk September Award
What a year! My album THE EARS MAY TRAVEL is shortlisted for the Soundwalk September Award 2020. In the context of closing borders, not only for health purposes but often also serving a dubious political agenda, the field recording compositions remind the listeners that freedom of movement is a basic human need and a human right for all.
Space–We–Space on Common Waves

Stipend for BLINDer
Great news in the postbox – The cultural office of the city of Leipzig funds my new sound installation BLINDer, in which everything is about blind abandonment. A human being between environment and other humans. Perception, trust, encounters. In the installation visitors become a part of the art work. Now the conception of this new work can happen until the end of 2020.
Shortlisted for Prix Europa!
I am utterly excited – my cut-up collage THE WOLF IN US is shortlisted for Prix Europa in the category Radio Fiction. End of October 2020 the results will be made public. Unfortunately all festivities in Potsdam are canceled this year due to COVID-19 and everything will happen online.

The Curious Loop – Sound Art Residency

Time to Think for „FundStücke“
29th of June to 29th of August 2020 – a stipend for my project „FundStücke“ (found pieces): With sudden changes in daily life during the pandemic, walks became an important way to balance for many people. In the framework of the project walkers find recognizable “FundStücke” in public space that are eye-catching. Every carefully designed “FundStück” includes a QR code that leads to a sound composition or an audio story. They are connected to the place they were found in and can be listened to at home. The city as garden becomes an audible library. From now on, it needs to be mentioned „The creation of this work was made possible by a stipend of Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen“.
Master Class in Arles
12th to 16th of July 2020 I will explore the Master Class „La Radio Performée“ by Alessandro Bosetti with Phonurgia Nova in Arles, France. In the past year the jury of Prix Phonurgia Nova honored me with this participation because my project „Follow Me“ impressed them.
