BIOGRAPHY
With the increasing complexity of human environment, the core processes of systems that govern our daily lives become less apparent. On one hand there is more accessible information, but there is also less time to deal with and understand that information. This dichotomy results in fascinating social phenomena, which lie at heart of my artistic interest. Incessant flows of music, glitch sounds, iterative processes and static noise are but a few elements that help me describe resilience of human spirit as we race against our rapidly changing reality. Taking part in renowned festivals and residency programs for composers like Présences, Impuls, Mata, Manifeste, Steirischer Herbst, Royaumont, etc., I was able to exchange and discuss my ideas with C. Czernowin, P. Ablinger, M. André, H. Parra and others. My pieces have been performed by professional ensembles for new music (Secession Orchestra, Ensemble Intercontemporain, Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Modern, Talea, Slovene Philharmonics, Ensemble Recherche) and the acceptance of my work also led to several scholarships (Boulanger, Frankopan, Erasmus, …). Studying composition at music academies in Graz and Stuttgart as well as at Ircam in Paris, gave me the opportunity to learn from great composers such as C. Gadenstätter, S. Gervasoni, G. F. Haas, G. Kühr, K. Lang, M. Lanza, M. Stroppa and J. C. Walter. In 2014, together with my team, I started NOVALIS – festival which focuses on contemporary music and related interdisciplinary projects. In 2016 I have strted my doctorate at Stanford university, where I am studing composition with Brian Ferneyhough and conducting with Paul Phillips. Currently I am doing an exchange at University of Chicago, where I am studying with Anthony Cheung, Augusta Read Thomas and Sam Pluta.
