His first forays into sound experimentation happened in the late 80's and early 90's, when he starts to use a double cassette deck TECHNICS to do copy-and-paste sound collages, and also recorded and played back his voice while improvising with an organo ANTONNELLI his grandmother gave him. These investigations led him to literature, to the discipline of poetry, where he won one or two literature contests and participated in magazines in the fields of literature and surrealism.
He also began his foray into the visual arts (drawing and painting), which develops to this day professionally along with the sound.
It was not until 2005 when he developed a disturbing inability to communicate with the written word, and the need to cover behind the visual. So began an investigation on par between audio and plastic, which the artist considers indivisible from one another.
His work methodology focuses mainly on the capture, extraction, editing and storage of audio samples from different sources:
records on the street dialogues extracts audiovisual edits and converts of radio signals
uses a shortwave radio to capture foreign broadcasts uses EVP 911 calls
Transforms, relentlessly, curtails, beheads and sews sound works from different backgrounds and authors, providing the glue that comes from analog-digital instruments and audio processors and resulting in a "sound narration" split into parts. His sound works do not drop below 20 minutes for just such narrative, where there is a development from defined introduction to epilogue.
Detests the "digital finishing" of sound with a computer. For that reason dirty, gnawing and saturated sounds prevail (but without spoiling the record), thus achieving kind of a sound archeology.
His creative concepts pursues mysticism, the occult, time,religions, the process that leads to contemplation,the silence, the pause, the suspension, death and upstarts.
No musician describes himself
according to their own words.
"What I do not see myself as music, I do not feel musical, I not position myself musically.
I DO NOT THINK musically, I'm more close to the investigation ,to the pamphleteer, the readymade and the situation. Even so shamanic the Medium Channeling.
No rhythm and no melody that dominates the whole picture. Abuse of rhythm and melody is a necessary evil for those who can not handle a drift. It's like being in a large room without light. You need to touch the walls and artifacts that fill the room to feel welcome in the position and perspective.”
