Hello. I’m dealing with sound as material since many years now. I’ve been releasing records and playing live since 2004, lately my works range from performative arts, theatre and moving images, intersecting collaborations with artists which like me are facing the difficulties of modern times. I’ve been the founder, with others, of collective experiences based on sound as focus. I believe sound is a presence able to inhabit, shape and characterize our context and, as it has always been, will survive ourselves.
