Always attracted by music and objects that generate peculiar sounds.
Joined my first band around the year 2000 with some friends, with the sole purpose of making music together. Meanwhile, the interest in the technical side of sound production, such as the mechanics of musical instruments and recording techniques has increased.
My formal training in engineering deeply influenced the way I approach and conceive music production. Academic studies and music research finally overlapped leading to the Ph.D. in Music Information Retrieval. This gave me the opportunity to join the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM) in Paris, where I worked as a visiting researcher in the Analysis/Synthesis team. This experience has deeply marked my way of perceiving and experiencing the nature of sound and noise.
Currently my research focuses mainly on data-driven synthesis techniques, sonification, generative music, concrete music with real time/delayed time parameter manipulation. Recently I have grown fond of field recording, in particular when applied to ephemeral sound documents that are not easy to perceive by ear.
