Mixing electronic music with flute is a big part of my artistic persona. I am collaborating with composers and producers all around the world and trying to compose and produce by myself as well. "Hussars" for flute and electronics is my first attempt as a composer and producer. I used live-recording of one of my horses, Bizarro, mixed with synths and an improvised flute part. Huge thanks to Oliver Getz who helped me with mixing and polishing this track. You can also listen to LIGO by Alissa Voth and Fantasia Electronica by Pedro Osuna, both tracks commissioned for me in 2018 and 2019.
