In addition to his stunning solo work (the latest of which, Radioland, is not to be missed), he has collaborated with countless artists and musicians including Janek Schaefer (Hidden Name), Ekkehard Ehlers (Heroin) and Taylor Deupree (Transcriptions). Look for upcoming releases this year on 12k/line, Alku and Root Strata.
