I am a composer or improviser or musician or sound artist or programmer. I play guitar, sing, play around with sensors, bicycles, radios and code. I make music and sound for movies, theater, radioplays, dance and video games. I do 'guerilla style' media bicycle performances and organize art bicycle expeditions - in which the environment is explored through performances.
