Sven Helbig is part of a generation of composers that no longer acknowledges the traditional lines between the world of classical composing, experimental art and pop music.

Hovering vibraphone sounds and Breakcore beats, opulent strings and synth surrogates are all part of his powerful musical arsenal.
