After following a classical music and jazz education in Buenos Aires, Lyon and New York, he dedicated since 2000 to play electro acoustic improvised music, applying to his reeds instruments a set of preparations and self created extended techniques. His set up allows him to build simple polyphonic constructions of noises and pitched sounds. He regularly plays live and tours, and has released several Cd´s (labels Another Timbre, B-Boim, Mego, Cathnor, Improvised Music From Thessaloniki, Formed, No Seso, Azul, L´Innomable, Absurd, Ideal, Potlatch, Mikroton). In the last years he has been composing solo music for his instruments and other devices,creating pieces and perception works based in the use of objects, acoustic research, and social aspects. He enjoys to compose together with other musicians, and to improvise in defined contexts. Among other projects he directed in 2007 the “Extended Modulator” Project, performing at the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin, with the “Licht-Raum Modulator”, the kinetic sculpture created by László Moholy-Nagy in 1930. He is involved in several stable improvised music groups, like SLW and Amber, as well as projects related to the minimal electronica scene.
