Description of Style

In addition to my compositions for traditional instrumentation, I have begun to take interest in electro-acoustics and computer music. This activity includes composing film music on the computer, as well as producing electro-acoustic experimental music ("Mysterion" I, II, III) and research in the fields of electro-acoustics (sound research, psycho-acoustic phenomena) up to research in computer software.
