Constantly searching for new spaces to explore, he uses his instrument as a way to touch upon surrealist worlds. The pulsation, a simple tribal dance that solicits the mind, is deconstructed and reappears with a start underlining the complexity of his sound. He evolves as a tightrope walker, sweeping the void around him with his arms, giving it a human or bestial face.
