Dark, Eerie and Manic and Magnetophon are video wroks that I recently made. Teh JPG Glitch Pattern images are the results from a script that I made this year.

I'm not sure which video I'll show yet. I may make something new. I also don't know what I'll perform yet. However, I think it'll look something like those images

As a performer and visual artist his work has been featured at galleries and festivals including in Arles, France, Laptops Meet Musicians Festival in Venice, Italy, f(Glitch) at Stony Brook University, NY, and the Barber Institute of Fine Arts in Birmingham, UK.
