"How, in words, to account for the experience that is every time for me listening to loud speakers sound? How about this curious combination of cinema and architecture, sculpture and poetry, I try, very specifically, to shape them? Of these invisible but tangible spaces where image and material clash and offer closed eyes and ears open?

About thirty years as its top-speaking, who can only exist by its projection in the air through speakers became my area of exploration and expression. It is the material architectures that I shape the images of stories I tell.

In a closely integrated with the completion of my work so I spent much of my time thinking about the place of the space in conjunction with other criteria sounds, and explore techniques that allow me to deal with . I ended up making the tools I needed ( the AcousModules ), and more recently to gather my equipment peddler of sounds ( the AcousMobile ) now essential to intimate my work. "
