He has been performing futurist sound poetry for well over 10 years. He has been active in Europe, the U.S., Australia, and South America as a practitioner of world avantgarde music; his scholarly areas include both 20th-century and late-14th-century music. Compositions include a piano and percussion duet after Pier Paolo Pasoliniʼs “Petrolio.”
