Solo: a little story (2016-2020) Little acoustic stories developed through my listening to the world and collecting noises.
Breath (2019) The soft sound of breathing unfolds, spreads, travels and mixes with the wind.
Floating moment (2019) A moment in time is narrated through a precise written descripton of sonic and visual events, thus becoming a score that can be reproduced in musical form.
Approchoaches and Departure – Appearance and Disappearances (Pauline Oliveros 1994) the score provides each performer with a strategy for approaching or departing from a pitch of his or her own chosing.
