Working with sound in any artistic field and surroundings is what keeps me fresh and alert! All tecnical and musical aspects of any soundsource and theit treatement leads to new, sometimes unforseen results. All kinds of analog and digital tools at hand, let me manipulate sounds as they where a piece of dough: 3 dimensional sounddesign.
These tecniques combined with my large interest in visual design, creates kind of an architextural art, followed by the presentation of sound and audio installations.
