In 2015 he performed as a drummer and singer in the show WieBo of the Cie DCA Decouflé at the Philharmonie de Paris. In 2022 he will release his first solo album (Mule Jenny). He is creating a show for 3 musicians and 3 dancers entitled La Ligne Pointillée in 2022. He is also a teacher and a speaker (RPM collective, SMAC network, conservatories, music schools). The work that guides him is based on pulsation and the independence between the song and the instrument, his approach to rhythm and polyrhythmsis above all melodic and not mathematical.
