Inroled in composition workshops, he receives advise from Brian Ferneyhough, Beat Furrer, Pierluigi Billone, Liza Lim, Philippe Hurel and Peter Ablinger. His pieces have been played in music festivals in Europe and south-america, by ensembles such as L’instant donné, Ensemble Caïrn, Ensemble Abstraï and the KNM Berlin.
