"My music is not the most innovative ever written, but I like to think that it is hard to mistake it for someone else's".
"I enjoy writing as if I composed electronic music when I write for instruments and vice versa".
His music, often enjoyed and praised by performers, has been commissioned and premiered by some of the most well-known and respected European ensembles, like Intercontemporain, Contrechamps, Linea, the BBC Scottish Symphony or Recherche.
His musical universe, somewhere between the Southern Europe's transparency, the French refinement and the Swiss precision, is broad and encompasses several musical typologies, from collaborations with choreographers to a "concerto grosso" with electronics.
