Electroacoustic commission from NMK in 2016.
“Hei!” is an electroacoustic piece disguised as a hörspiel. The work unfolds on a meta-level between the process of making the piece and the piece itself. With post-electroacoustic irony, this fictional radio documentary gives us a glimpse of the trauma that can hit those that are getting too close to the real electroacoustic secrets.
Performed at New York International Electroacoustic Music Festival in 2017. Durata: 24 min.
Commission for Alpaca Ensemble, winter 2018. Durata: 20 min.

Commission for "Kitchen Orchestra", autumn 2017. Durata: 20 min.
