Klaus will interweave our Dance journey with his heartfelt & tuned in soundscapes. A seasoned musician at Contact festivals in Europe, he knows just how to tune into the Dancer's field & flow, complementing it beautifully with his music.

"It is always refreshing and surprising to create sound atmospheres together with other musicians. As a percussionist, it is particularly exciting to improvise ~ to allow soundscapes to emerge in the moment; with feeling, flowing and at the same time accentuated. I play Congas, Djembe, Waterdrums, Ngoni and small percussions".

I love to play (with) music, especially jamming with other musicians. Music is there, ongoing, you just have to connect yourself with it by an instrument. For me music is fulfillment right now. Creates a connection to the whole. With the Ngoni (string-instrument from Westafrika) one can enter this stream any moment, like storytelling by sound.

Further instruments : Clarinet, Piano, Voice and percussion.

I grew up with music. Playing piano, singing, blowing the vacuum cleaner’s pipe… For more than 20 years I’m now focusing on woodwinds, namely saxes and clarinets.
My musical home is in improvised music, from contemporary conceptual music through world music, Jazz and electronic music to Funk.
My second passion is contact improvisation and along with that the interaction between dance and music. An interaction where both, music and dance, are listening to each other and the moment’s impulses.
An important part of my way as an artist is meditation and self exploration, this focus is, besides my music, the contribution I want to make to this dynamic field called contact improvisation!
