The label focuses on releasing sound works via limited edition CDs, art-objects and digital works that combine a deeply emotional aim with a clear conceptual framework and aesthetic vision.
In 2014 he co-launched Mote, a mixed media design studio based in Berlin creating contemporary design solutions for culture and commerce. Working with visual arts, sound, photography and video, the studio offers a wide range of services in the areas of graphic design, sound production and installation.
