Sounding like organic field recordings but synthetically rendered, these tense environments teeter on the edge of collapse whilst the echoes of Hendrix and Haino fly past.
He is a part of The Holy Soul, Guarde Compartmente (a duo with Monika Brooks & Delirium Tremens ( a duo with Peter Newman). He has performed with the likes of Damo Suzuki (Can), David Thomas (Pere Ubu), Yusuke Akai, Somaya Langley, TAD, Nick De Jong and Shoji Hano. He co-presents the weekly new/experimental music program 'Song X' on 2ser wirth Martin Ng & Peter Blamey and coruns a small label Magnetic Recording Council .
