My friend Lucas McNally asked me for playing some drums and percussions for a jingle for a very good documentary about REEPERBAHN FESTIVAL 'Quotes'.
The documentary is about gender discussion, feminism and actual problems in musicians lifes as part of the festival. Completely recommend.
In 2021 I had the honor to be part of a wonderful project with the deaf female dancer Kassandra Wedel. This Project is a cooperation between Filmschule Babelsberg and my friend and composer Max van Dusen.

time collapsed screenshots is improvised music between free jazz and progressive rock. In these different times of corona and war we musicians are permanently in search of meaning and peace in
kind of a new speech.
time collapsed screenshots has no requirements in chords, lines or melodies. except in one song. the only requirement I made was related to time structure, texture and rough shapes in particular situations.
time collapsed screenshots should directly reflect the times of corona. It is a snapshot. It doesn't feel stable and comfortable. The music feels strong and loud but fragile at the same time. A rebellion against partially hopeless situations.
In 2021 I recorded a fully improvised album with Gellert Szabo and Rafael Espinoza. With the help of GVL Neustart Kultur it was possible to make a full Album out of it.
Sophia Bicking will release her first solo EP this year. In july, august and september we will have some release concerts with th SOPHE band.
The first SOPHE EP is out now. You can listen to the whole album on spotify
