In the same year he introduces some standard electronic machines, such as analog synths and samplers, and unusual instruments like the wavemeter. Around 1995 he develops the resource of the mixer, so to use it as a proper instrument. He has been influenced by the writer William Burroughs\' cut-up technique. He uses this technique to play the mixer and he uses sound and silence to create a primitive and percussive music. in 1998 he starts to use computer for electronic recording and electronic treatment.
