He engages in art projects that span performance, sound art and installation, and conducts educational initiatives in the realm of sound and interactivity.

The ensemble has earned several awards and positive reviews, most notably for their album Cluster ensemble Plays Philip Glass, released by Orange Mountain Music in 2016.
