I have an inquisitive mind which is -luckily- seldom satisfied and leads me to build and play a variety of instruments, sounding toys, sculptures and art installations.


I have worked with La Rasbaïa, Céline Caussimon, Michel Jeanneret, Jean-Marc Casales, etc.

I have travelled to the territories of World Music (Africa, Comoros, South America, etc.)

and taken it to the realms of Theater (Benoit Lavigne, Ned Grujic, Rafael Bianciotto, Mario Gonzalez, Dimitri Dubreucq, Terra Vandergaw, Laurent Dupont, Florence Goguel, Cyrille Louge, Violaine Fournier...) but also Dance (Claudia Gradinger, Bérengère Altieri-Leca, Marion Bae, Mathieu Hernandez...), and Spoken Words (Simon Gauthier, Marc Roger, etc.). I have shared my expertise and discoveries with others around the world (France, US, Iceland, etc.).

My co-workers today are Fred Pons (Kopo guitars), François-Xavier Guérin, Yves Fauchon, Paco Galan, Alain Sichou, Didier & Patrick Warin, Frédéric Obry, Frédéric dutertre & co.
