composer based in Stuttgart, Germany, originally from Zagreb, Croatia.

my artistic practise deals with pop culture, its aesthetic and its sociopolitical consequences, as well as nostalgia,

collective memory, and the vast network of pop-culture data and the byproducts arising through their juxtaposition.
