Silence might have today the value that music used to. For many human beings around the world, experiencing quietness is almost impossible. In a hectic world, I see different challenges today for an artist: how to give silence the value music used to have, how to write for our inner voice, how to write for a string quartet without strings, how to write a minute of silence or how to give more attention our fantasy and to be aware that it is the most important difference between humans and the rest of living creatures.

“Still-Leben mit Stille” (Still life with silence), is intended to contemplation focusing on the graphic value of silence in music. At the same time, it is an opportunity for me to develop my passion for storytelling using our universal language: I build a story around the different people they are dedicated to, making a portrait of them.

Whatever the beginning of the universe might have been, it was the start of a huge composition we are all part of, with all our voices and all their echoes. This is the reason why I believe that silence is nothing but an illusion.
