Are you looking to know more about my art projects? I have a webpage dedicated to that (here). If you just want a quick overview, here it goes.

I play turntables like they are full-fledged instruments, which means they can be bowed, percussed, scratched, subversed & hacked. I make my own needles and records using circuit-bending and acrylic cutting. I engage in collaboration with visual artists, performance & improvisors. I have played in venues such as Transmediale, Serralves Foundation, Casa da Música, OutFest, Rescaldo, Metasonic & Future Places and collaborate with many artists: Carlos ZíngaroAndré GonçalvesGabriel FerrandiniPedro SousaMiguel SáHernâni Faustino, Rodrigo PinheiroPer GärdinCarlos SantosManuela São Simão and in ensembles conducted by William Winnant (Zorn’s Cobra), Reinhold Friedl & Ernesto Rodrigues.
