His current projects include the drum solo project 15 8 SLUM, Xenofox with Olaf Rupp, Der Dritte Stand with Matthias Müller and Matthias Bauer, and Ohlmeier / Khroustaliov / Fischerlehner. He also plays or has played with Gorilla Mask, the Julie Sassoon Quartet, Fiium Shaarrk, Tonia Reeh, Tristan Honsinger, Matthias Schubert, Mia Dyberg, Joke Lanz, Zsolt Sőrés, Andreas Willers, Frank Paul Schubert, Erste Stufe Haifisch, the Sound 8 Orchestra and many more.

As a producer and composer for film soundtracks he contributed to movies by Ella Raidel, Johanna Kirsch and Katharina Lampert and was involved in the art, video or performance work of Wilhelm Groener, Alterazioni Video and Katrin Plavcak among others.
