(born in 1966, in Vienna) composer. She grew up and had her first musical experiences in Carinthia and later studied music education for schools, recorder performance and athletic studies in Graz. She returned to Vienna in  1992 and has since then become deeply involved with the accordion, in search of music’s more unorthodox aspects. She has been active in composing since 2002 and currently mainly for her duet “Salz”(together with bass clarinetist Susanna Gartmayer), a chamber music like stylistic mix of jazz, avant-garde, down to earth elements and all manner of improvisation.
