- I'm a wanderer on a shamanic journey called transformation following the tracks of the ancestral path of the bewildered Sacred Feminine -

Music

I have been producing music since 2019. 2017 was the beginning of my studies in home-recodings and the founding of my new project Völven.

Völven is intuitive, animistic music and intonated witchcraft. Throat singing, vocal experiments, overtone and indigenous instrumentals, drones, dark folklore, field-recordings amplified by blackened ambient soundscapes.

The key moment to Völven (derived from Völva, an Old Norse and Icelandic term for a female sorceress or shaman, seer) I had by exploring and tracing back growls and the resonance of certain tones.

It led me to the magickal and healing depths of throat singing also called overtone singing.

In Latin breath is called anima, "breath, spirit, life.

- I am inspired mostly by the animistic view of nature as well as dark ambient, psychogeography, meditation, sacred music from around the world -

 Retrospective ~

In 2008, a big dream came true!

 I founded my first rock band with my guitarist friend as e-bass player and singer. In 2009 I played electric bass in an ethno rock band as a side project. 

In 2010 my first black metal band Cult of Blood was born! I mainly focused on vocals, songwriting, management, music video scripts and directing.

We released 2 music videos "Hail Saturnus" and "Runar", an EP, the full-lenght album ERDGEIST and played live shows with great other bands.

After the band broke up in 2015/16 it became very important to me to develop the vocals further and to trace its transformative healing power.

Photography

From 1998 on until now I`m creating art photography, face and body paintings and recently short video clips.

Black and white photography especially dance and movement studies and analog nude photography laid the basis for my visual projects. Over time, my focus shifted more to spiritual issues related to nature magik and contemplation. Therefore, one looks at topics overlapping in the categories, from the past, the present and future-oriented.

Background:

After my studies I completed an education in gymnastics, Modern Dance and Contemporary followed by live performances and classes.

As photo model of a professional Swiss photographer I gained my first experiences in photography, followed by successful collaborations and a long-standing apprenticeship in analogue photography, book publications, tv shows and reports in Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

In 2002, we organized an adventurous public nude photo shooting in front of the main entrance of ART UNLIMITED BASEL. Among the crowd gathered around us was the New York-based installation artist Jan Baracz, who spontaneously invited us to take another photo shoot with him as a living element in his installation. With an official artist's passport, we used the entire ART BASEL site for our nude shootings which attracted a lot of attention.

Between 2005 and 2010 I presented my works to a larger audience in various compilation books by Skylight Edition Zurich and several series at the German magazine Stern.
