Questioning his own relations to languages, logics, dreams and social acts. In his format 'aesthetic learningcontexts' he composes and presents the results of his artistic research, including lecturing and performing guests as 'intermezzi'. (Currently, 2020: with South-Indian master of mridangam Anushaant Nayinai Wijayan (see their: Netzwerk Konnakol).
