At the Musikhochschule he studied the piano with Aloys Kontarsky, conducting with Wolfgang von der Nahmer, and composition with York Holler, with further study on a scholarship to IRCAM in Paris, where he was a pupil of Vinko Globokar, and in Cologne studied electronic music with Hans Ulrich Humpert.

In 1991 he became artistic director and conductor of the Musikfabrik of the North-Rhine-Westphalia regional ensemble, and has since then been a regular guest conductor of ensembles such as the Vienna Klangforum and symphony orchestras, including the North German Radio, South West Radio, BBC, Vienna Radio Symphony orchestras, and the Basel Sinfonietta, appearing at the Salzburg Festival, the Vienna Festival Weeks, the Styrian Autumn, the Munich Biennale, and the Dresden Festival, with tours to Russia, Japan, and America, in addition to a number of recordings.
