I'm an artist, writer, radio producer and experimental music composer who first started listening to bridge cables in 1994, and created Singing Bridges, an urban sonic sculpture using the cables of bridges as musical instruments on a global scale. I work with field-recordings, on-site interventions and improvisation, in collaboration with artists around the world, and have traversed the globe from Helsinki to the Mekong Delta and Singapore to Paris, in an endless quest for bridge music. Work is recently exhibited, broadcast & performed at ISEA, European Sound Delta, Pixelache, Transit Lounge, Liquid Architecture 9, soundmuseum.fm, Das Kleine Field Recordings Festival & Radio WNE.
The making of each work transforms the way I see myself and the world around me. Once I start engaging in the process of working I'm embarking as well upon a journey whose point of arrival is unkown to me. For me, intentions and preconceived ideas have a very limited role in the creative process. More fascinating are the impasses, the unexpected procedures, the accidents, the unwanted discoveries, as well as time wasted and useless moves. I'm thus working in different mediums, always looking for the one that is matching to mediate what I want to tell during the process of working. Out of a personal passion either I'm visiting people that fascinate me and talk with them or I'm inviting people to participate in the process of my projects.
