(1961) has been giving performances on self-built electronic systems based on transmission and reception techniques for the past 20 years. He is mainly interested in the musical qualities of interference, so-called noise. In recent years visual aspects have become increasingly important in his work. This is shown not only by his collaboration with video artist Bas van Koolwijk, with whom he designed the Synchronator (a device that transforms audio into a video signal), but also by his latest sound installations. Break Before Make: The Cavity Version (2008) was recently purchased by the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
