I have been playing drums for a long time. At the end of 1970s, when I was attracted by punk and new wave. Since then I was also influenced by the Czech underground and a broad range of musical “alternatives”. I have participated in several non-commercial musical projects and bands. Already in my birth-town, Karlovy Vary, I played with 3 lydi [3 peeple], then, in 1980s, I was drummer of Dvouletá fáma [Two-year rumour]. I have collaborated with Oldřich Janota and Pavel Richter. Recently, I more and more enjoy playing and listening to improvised music. I was a member of improvising Dr. Konopný Quartet and I am pleased to engage in improvising theatrical-musical performances of Divadlo Vizita. Among my most recent musical projects is a duo with Luboš Fidler, called Noční pták [Nightbird], or solo performances on acoustic drum set. In 2022 I joined the band Kolna.

Music is only a part of my life. I spend a lot of time working as sociologist. And, occasionally, I mention some other activities on this web site. You can view all this mixed together or separately, in thematic sections. To navigate, you can use the menu on the top or the following URL addresses:
