To compose is to imagine with sounds

The artistic activity is as a game from which the man is free, because he creates his proper rules (Schiller)

I work on a computer, mainly on the basis of instrumental sounds, an alternative music , free of any kind of technic or predefined style. My sound universe is expressionist and comes from contemporary, classical and progressive musics.
