I started with my first sound recording and soundscape composition studies
and experiments at the end of the nineties.
From 2002 through 2008, I studied Media Art in Leipzig, Germany and
turned more and more to wildlife sound recording as my prior discipline.
As a freelance ornithologist and sound recordist, biological and ethological
issues as well as the communication of acquired knowledge - via publications,
presentations, lectures, documentaries, radio programs - constitute the
fundamental parts of my work.
Due to extensive travelling to rather remote places and more than 60 trips
on research ships, I used to work and live under difficult circumstances.
My private collection contains approximately 12,000 digital sound recordings
from different animals as well as acoustic phenomena and sounds from natural
and urban habitats.
