Artistic Collaborations

Over the years of this research project I have collaborated with many very inspiring artists -
 the chance to perform together and to work together on my music has deepened and enriched my project unmeasurable - THANK YOU!

I want to give a special acknowledgment to those that I do not often work with in my own ensembles
and with whom I got to know through this project:
Tord Gustavsen & band (OSLO), Anders Jormin (GOTHENBURG), Janne Mark & band (COPENHAGEN),
Musicians of the NDR Big Band (HAMBURG), Chanda Rule & band (Vienna), Marc Secara (BERLIN),
Ike Sturm and band (NYC), Simin Tander (COLOGNE) and the Yves Theiler Trio (ZURICH).

Equally, my artistic collaboration extended to all the theologians I feel very grateful for having worshipped together and learned from each other through the practice of Liturgical Jazz. Very special thanks go to Julia Koll and Matthias Krieg, and all the BlueChurch members with whom we celebrated jazz services and felt there was a community being built through jazz and worship.

A collaboration with Kunsthalle Zurich and Rob Pruitt´s installation "The Church" .
Here the BlueChurch network curated alternative worship services in the midst of Pruitt´s installation for several weeks. The services always contained a high degree of improvisation, matching the openess of Pruitt´s art and the space.
