“He records with his own microphones all over the world for more that ten years. His field recordings capture the sound space from multiple spots with the aim of recognise the sound identity limits of the place. His recording methods are a creative part of his sound creation process and therefore he builds his own microphones, looking for a creative and personal way of recording. His concerts and sound installations are distinguishable for the sound spatialization and for the privacy that is generated though the sound.” – Federico Sancho
