On sono there are over 30 hours of mainly unreleased compositions of mine with the focus being on live recordings. Allow time for some of the files to open as they are all in high quality format, most of them 192 kbit/s. Some of the tracks are over 45 minutes long and load as one file.

I have arranged the files under styles such as jazz, installation music, eclectica, and spoken word (softspeakers) to make it easier for you, dear listener. If you want to listen to different mp3 at the same time which I am sure you are all dying to do with my music than just open new windows. For now just click and enjoy…

______________________________________eclectica:

This little baby I named the Fibonacci Raga. It is created with my alto, a sruti box, and my voice. The raga itself returns back to the 5th, 8th, 13th, and 21st overtone of C, the fundamental. It is another way in which I am exploring this glorious sequence with my copper and reed, reaching up into the majestic firmament fretted with golden fire as best I can. Recorded by Pedja Avramovic in Studio P4 Berlin but one moon ago:

At this year’s Music Village in Greece I played a duo with Kostas Anastasiadis in the schoolyard. Here are the results:
