His recent piano & live-electronic Tiento de las Nieves shows are receiving enthusiastic critical acclaim (“The arc of a life unfolding in endless variations” TheWire/UK, “Beautifully enigmatic and elegiac” Neural Magazine/IT), while his stage visuals keep setting a benchmark for the fusion of music and images since his 2004 Golden Nica – winning Banlieue du Vide.
