Owner - Dipl. Architect ETH

I am often asked, what architecture has to do with music reproduction? Music is a counterpart of architecture: It is weightless and volatile, architecture is heavy and constant. But they are mutually dependent as music needs space to sound not only in our heads. Today we can store the music and so it becomes as constant as architecture. A new play between music and space takes place, also combined with video reproduction. To design this play is fascinating.

The fascination for music and its reproduction started in my youth. This was followed by the fascination for architecture. But since my studies at the ETH I learned beside my work as an architect a lot about acoustics and music reproduction, before I founded in 1997 the company Klangwerk on which I focused more and more my work. The first project was to develop exclusive loudspeakers, later I added the planning of whole audio- video systems and the organisation of the exhibition Klangschloss.
