For over 30 years, he has never stopped discovering new musical materials, new sounds and new ways of playing. A self-taught percussionist, he has forged a technique and a sense of play that have enabled him to collaborate with artists from all walks of life, from flamenco to improvised music, via jazz, rock, electro, cricket, etc... Member of the Freddy Morezon collective with the group Facteur Sauvage, Daniel Scalliet (voice), Mathieu Sourisseau (bass), the duo CiRuS ViRCuLe with Betty Hovette (arranged piano), and the ensemble FM ...
As a solo artist, he expresses his permanent desire for freedom, where the smallest event and the slightest sound find become material for improvisation, for inventing in the moment "everything is good in sound". In a duo with Jean-François Vrod, he plays an ageless improvised music of the cities and the countryside, the plains and the mountains. With Betty Hovette (duo) and Aymeric Avice (trio), he dives into a creative abundance of acoustic and rhythmic material. He is putting together a triptych on 19th century English poetry with actor Denis Lavant and saxophonist Camille Secheppet: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Oscar Wilde and Lewis Carroll are in the mix.
