I started playing guitar in the early seventies, mostly playing in open improvisation bands. In the eighties, I started using tape loops, played in new age, punk, and rock bands, open improvisation orchestras, and took some Guitar Craft lessons from Fripp who has always been my favorite guitarist. In the nineties, I played with a cover band and a Guitar Craft inspired ensemble. Since 2000 I mostly played with avant rock and open improv bands again.

I have always used electronics and strange devices to make my guitar sound unusual, and loop delays, field recordings, and computers (especially granular synthesis) to construct soundscapes or unusual pieces of solo music. Since 2003, I've been experimenting with real-time looping and cut-up collage techniques using a simple radio as input, being fascinated by the unpredictability of that sound source.
