<< In this unstable and fragile times of Covid19, I´m questioning many aspects of my life as an artist. For moments I´m on very shaky ground concerning my vocational prospects.

When the Austrian government announced, that Singing is questionable in a virological sense and therefore prohibited generally, I felt meaningless about the precarious situation in the cultural field in common.

To deal with this more than absurd situation I started vocalizing for myself in my own four walls to approach my voice in an unintentional, raw and unused way - just on purpose to create somatic and emotional feelings in my body and to utter whatever present time needs. And I mentioned once again, that my body and my voice are the true four walls in my life.

So, when a few days later Yuval invited me to participate in Human Signs, I was incredible excited and filled with happiness. Because it gave me the possibility to “go home” in solitude while being embedded in a huge collective awareness. I really appreciate to be part of the Human Signs Community.>>
