He has realized compositions and audio works for film, media and sound installations, as well as for the stage and he has realized one opera score, all of which cover a broad spectrum of distinct aesthetics. His main interest lies in conceiving systems, that are autonomous, interactive or self- contained, trough the use of digital- and computer aided techniques, mostly applying “experimental methods”, as well as a healthy dose of research, “skepticism” and daydreaming. He often collaborates closely across different media with other artists.His works have been staged internationally and have received some acclaim and rewards.
