As a musician, he is increasingly integrating music into his sound design, having recently composed the soundtrack for dance shows. In parallel, he has written and directed a documentary (Gospel According to Vivienne, 2011) as well as three short films, the last of which, Davaï, has been presented in a dozen international festivals.
