On this site you will find audio samples mainly from the two general fields “Contemporary Music” and “Traditional music styles” like Jazz or Latin Music. In addition, there are excerpts from arrangements at the bottom of this page. Currently, most of the audio samples are composed in traditional musical language, but the main focus of my work is in contemporary music. This is also due to the problem-free realizability of traditional styles in the digitally produced audio samples.
