“The use of live electronics has characterised my composition process over the last years. This should not be surprising, given that digitalisation is a defining element of our time in all areas of society, including art and compositional technique. It is impossible for me, however, to contemplate doing without the sound of instruments played live; for me, the performer’s expressivity will always be a central aspect of musical expression. The sounds created, however, are also fed into a computer via microphones on the instruments; they are then electronically transposed, modulated, delayed, filtered, looped… and then played back in real time via loudspeakers. The programming of the electronics is therefore a fundamental part of the composition. 

Several of these compositions were created in collaboration with the Studio Centre Henri Pousseur in Liège.”
