His work is diverse and includes the utilization of unconventional systemic graphic notation, interactive video scores, the use of performance art and installation within musical contexts, and most recently 3D animation, “with music and as music, which establishes a new dimension in creative experience and the realization of a new hybrid art music for the 21st century.”
