In his live performance, he is one man orchestra, playing electronics (beat box, kaoss pad, loop station and computers) with acoustic instruments (ukulele, melódica, hang drum, harp, tiny percussion etc.) live process, field recordings and text all at the same time.

Since 2006 he has been developing a media project combining sounds with images and textworking with VJS, generating a mix between these elements, looking for a conceptual and discursive unity between them.
