His sound art, conceptual art and musical experiments addresses the crossovers between order and chaos, synthesis and organism, repetition and difference, the human and non-human. Member of the Berlin based research colloquium KlangDenken/Sonic Thinking.

Currently teaching at Berlin University of the Arts, Humboldt University of Berlin and Rhythmic Music Conservatory, Copenhagen.
