As interdisciplinary musicologist in the area of music physiology, music acoustics and music physiology my main focuses are the performance on musical instruments and music perception: GATHERING KNOWLEDGE TO SUPPORT MUSICIANS !

Documentations and results of previois studies can here be found on these pages. For some studies, there are videos and clips that visualize insights of performance research and other topics. Since 1993 I have supervised many works of students. A huge variety of topics with musicology. Check out the online material !

Ongoing Projects

Trumpet Lip Pressure

In a cooperation with Bonsai Systems at the ETH Zurich we develop „Sensor and Software Technologies for Lip Pressure Measurements in Trumpet Playing”and to bring them from Lab to Classroom.

Collecting Data from Beginners, Students and Professionals are allowing to share reference values, and to establish a new tool that can support beginners and provide high-level feedback to an experts and teachers.

Long Term Monitoring of Trumpet Performance

Astonished about the huge variety of trumpet sounds, performed by different players on different instruments through different times, I try to understand the influencing parameters. Many studies on the variabilities of trumpet playing are targeting on support for players and instrument makers.
