My approach to sound is based on the recording and transformation of environmental sounds, as a way to investigate the meanings of individual and collective contemporary ways of life. In live performances, I prefer acousmatic sets, in order to engage audience into deep listening experiences. I participated to several events such as Contemporary Music Festival of Bozen, IXEM, Spamming Fest, Scatole Sonore, Tuneup Fest, Natural History Museum of Sound, Your Soundscape.
