"How, in words, to account for the experience that is every time I listen to high-speaking sounds? 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?

I prefer to leave it to the floor projectors sounds, air vibrators, my acousmobiles ...

About thirty years that its high-speaking, who can only exist by its projection in the air through speakers, became my area of exploration and expression. It is the material that I architectures shapes, 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 role of 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 give to hear my work. "
