"Music begins where the possibilities of language end" Jean Sibelius
After long standing artistic career in performing music, I have started to write my own compositions recently. Composing music emerged for me somehow naturally as I started to explore new ways to express my creativity. At the same time it has been an intimate experience of bringing into the world creations which not only reflect my musical and artistic taste but also resonate with me on deeply personal level.
The beautiful thing about composing music is that it also opens doors to new collaborations and unusual encounters. It has been my great pleasure to collaborate with many talented musicians, artists and friends who have been participating in co-creating, recording and performing my music and who embarked with me on this beautiful journey.
