What I do

I am first and foremost a composer and sound artist.
Under the rubric of what could be called the "expanded field" of composition, I produce work that falls into several categories:

  • Scores

    Often constructed with the aid of computational algorithms, to be interpreted (mostly) by human performers.

  • Electoacoustic music

    Composed invariably using software and difused in performance using multi-channel audio playback systems.

  • Performance

    Using voice, (in)animate objects and electronics.

  • Texts

    Constructed and assembled with the assistance of algorithms; performed verbally, or in written form.
