Frank studied Rhythmik at the conservatory in Trossingen/Germany.
Since then he works as a drums and percussion teacher and as a freelancing musician.
Many years he worked with his own bands, the jazzquintet `whisper hot` and the percussionband `TIMPANICKS`. He also played middle age, flamenco and latin music, worked with dance companies and for theatres.
20 years ago Günter Buchwald asked him to join his silent movie music company and since then they have worked together intensively for national and international venues and festivals.
Throughout the last years Frank has also collaborated with many other great silent film musicians. ( e.g. filmfestival kyoto, midnight sun film festival, silent film festivals in pordenone, san francisco and others )
