Sonification of a glacier lake outburst flood.

Inspired by the absolute silence, that I experienced standing in a snow-pit on a glacier in Greenland, I started to search for sound in the silence.

Focusing on projects originating from true interests and feelings.

I have started many so-called side projects in the past. All of them were based on long-term interests and the feeling, that I just have to do them, not knowing exactly why. Unfortunately side projects most likely get interrupted by other things and remain unfinished or just as an idea. This year it's time to stop the interruption, step aside and resume all those lost ideas. Reset.
