My aim as an artist is to combine knowledge and development of tradition. I am always searching for answers and new questions...
This research project about the origins of the violoncello was part of my Cello Biomechanics research and cello method project.

My playing is forged from rich musical experiences in France, USA, Latino America, Spain, and Germany. Now based in Berlin and in the Bassin d'Arcachon in France, I am about to finish my Cello Biomechanics research project. You can visit The Cello Practice Helper and read more about m work.
