His discography includes releases on Smallforms and MOOZAK where his focus has been on music and sound that falls under the contemporary, electro-acoustic, noise/drone umbrella.

His Forwind debut with the powerful seven track trip, ‘In death I am caressing you’. A considerable amount of time was spent developing the music and ideas into a magnetic mix of deep drones, eerie atmospherics and blissful melancholy with a good dash of humour in the surreal and vibrant cover photos.
