His work is inspired by traditional music and enviroment sounds. He is also interested in the possibilities a musician has to multiply himself. In order to achieve this multiplicity he uses a varied setting of instruments that include D.I.Y. electronics, casette walkmans , AM radios,remote controls,cameras, guitars, samplers,voice, flutes , bells , etc. It is his intention to express concern for contemplation, patience and to establish a close, warm and joyful relation with the sounds that are arround us.
