Band/artist history
Short biography (parts relevant to music): - 9 years of classical piano lessons. - Study of mathematics and computer science, with a thesis in the field of mathematical music theory (Professors: Jürg Marti and Guerino Mazzola, on mathematical classification of musical motifs). - In-between, several years as keyboarder in bands, among others: Farmhouse Jazz Band (Dixieland Jazz), Aton Re (Hard Rock), The Jacket Ears (Blues/Rock'n Roll). Nowadays mostly returned to my main instrument (piano) and again mostly (but not exclusively) "classical" - respectively, as composer, "neoclassical". From my education stems an occasional tendency to use mathematical or algorithmical methods, and namely to explore alternative tunings, i.e. where one octave is not divided into 12 parts, but e.g. 5, 17 or 22. The methods of mathematical music theory can be very helpful there.
