BIOGRAPHY
NEW YORK CITY 1992-now
BERLIN 1985-1992
 Settling down in NYC in 1992 I founded several groups for new music and recorded 3 CDs with my own compositions on John Zorn’s label Tzadik. I've received composition grants from the state of Austria, the City of Vienna and Salzburg, and the CCP grant from American Composers Forum, Roulette and Harvestworks commissions. The compositions were performed in Berlin, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Salzburg and Vienna (a.m.o.)
    
   
I have toured around the world as a concert singer for new music with Dieter Schnebel and his vocal group” Die Maulwerker”. 1985 until 1992
I lived in Berlin where I attended the Berlin University as a guest student for composition and modern music theatre with Prof. Dieter Schnebel and Prof. Witold Szalonek and for visual arts with Eva Maria Schön.


    
Chinese Music
   
 I was a member of the Chinese Hai-Tien choir with Mrs. Pi-Chu Hsiao , and recorded with Gary Lucas Chinese pop music of the 30’s and 50’s for label blue which has swept the World Music charts internationally (including #1 in Canada, summer 2001) and topped many Best Album of the Year polls overseas (including France's influential newspaper Libération).
