Artist Statement →
I love to travel around the world for being inspired by new people, art, landscape, conversations, etc. I miss working with other artists across the globe but it also brought me back to a new form of solitude and intimacy. The first part of my work is a video of a song called "Dance" which I wrote in Vienna, performed and recorded it in New York City with a great band over there. Then this song was chosen by a Japanese Dance group called "Seel" - a fabulous group of deaf kids, who almost couldn't hear my music, but could feel it - and I was invited to perform this and other songs with the group at the Nara music festival. Back in Vienna, I made this Video. The second part is a video of me, performing alone in my living room, singing a song called "Wellen von Angst" (Waves of Fear), which deals with being alone, not able to perform on stages and fears of losing somebody due to the pandemic and the normality within all this. I wrote this song in German, which also reflects the feeling of being confined in my little world, but also opens a new level of intimacy for me.
