Composer, Sound Designer &
He has two solo albums under his name and various performances internationally. His numerous collaborations include Robert Rich, George Kallis and Nico Mastorakis among others. He is currently based in London, UK.
His compositions, performances, and installations utilize meticulous, architectural music production in order to turn emergent artifacts of failing technology into aesthetic sonic objects, inspired by retro sci-fi, anime, and the glitches in the Matrix.
In 2008, he had the honor to be part of the first YouTube Symphony Orchestra, which played a sold out concert at Carnegie Hall, NYC, under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, conductor of the San Francisco Symphony. In 2010, he founded a tango group, Guardia Nueva, who created the same year, the tango festival called Tang-aux-foins. First tango festival in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and one of the few in Quebec, 2022 will be its tenth edition.
