I was born on the 6th of December 1966 in Göttingen, Germany. My father was a German, my mother is from Chile. With the age of 7, I began to take me first instrumental lessons – at first the accordeon, later the piano. I was interested in playing the drums and the guitar as well. Later I studied at the university of Dortmund, took lessons for the jazz piano with Julius Styczinski (Iserlohn) and in arrangement with Betin Günes (Cologne). For years, I played in different jazz, pop and rock bands, accompanied the female soul singer Barbara Johnson from New York and arranged music for movies about the Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, various childrens musicals, video projections for World of Lights or Thyssen Krupp, the pop singer Bülent Ay. The chillout album “Park Lounge” was released by Universal.

The song „Tell Me Again“ is thematically linked to the song “Moai”. The same young man remembers the stories his father had told him. The evenings when he – his father – was telling the tale of the discovery of Easter Island to the chief, the heroes and their sons with a cigarette in the corner of the mouth of Hotu Matuá.

The song „MOAI“ was the first song and at the same time the theme song of the Moai project. It is a fantastic story about a young man who carves a Moai out of rock with his own hands. The statue embodies his father who he has worshipped and whom he wants to build a monument. He explains that he would love to give it a Pukao, a hat out of red stone. In Rapa Nui culture, the Pukaos were reserved for highly important Moai. The young man says he would love to give his Moai the title of Ariki, of a chief. It is said that his Moai does not have an ancestor and therefore does not have a decent burial site as the young man alone cannot move the statue.
