Using his whole body, he creates new soundscapes on the spot with 3D MIDI controllers and glitchy samplers. Always on the search for the new devices to diversify his live performances, he is developing gesture control technique to adjust audio effects with visual projections making the whole live set interactive. Musical improvisation is a big part of his performance. He creates music by the principle of the “first takes”, always leaving the initial, roughest pieces of the composition in the final edit, bringing this elusive principle into the genres of electronica and contemporary pop.
