Not only does he still believe there are yet-to-be-heard sounds in the plane most of us inhabit, he sets out to find them encroaching the daily cacophony, or alternatively tries to create them in a small makeshift lab where time always seems to look back.

His work as a filmmaker includes the writing and direction of the narrative short "Breathe the Night" (20), the documentary "The Names of Solidarity" (13), and the shorts "Still Life with Echo" (08) and "Bleiben" (06).
