Frankfurt-based writer and musician (* in Hamburg). A great unknown of metaphysical literature. Invisible griot. Childhood and youth in South Africa instilled an unbroken love of English, it became the preferred language of his soul. He has developed different meta-fictional writing techniques (such as his Patchwork Narratives series, which unites diverse chance operative methods with stream-of-consciousness narratives, permutations, variations and fragmentations of cut-ups, montages, cut-ins, collages, mesostics, acrostics and automatic writing) as well as traditional ballad/song, sonnet, ode, haiku, tanka, limerick or short story, novella and essayistic forms. All these are but finger exercises, a flexing of methods and techniques, en route to a more ambitious dream, that of a series of radio plays, novels, theatre plays, librettos and screenplays proposing to assimilate all the above (akin to a mad kaleidoscopic Gesamtkunstwerk infused with all those insufferable madnesses that such megalomania or - hopefully - strokes of genius may generate).
