His research focuses on theoretical aspects of wave digital filters, computer modeling of circuit-bent instruments, and other aspects of music technology. His music references elements of algorithmic/generative composition, breakbeat, chiptunes, musique concrète, circuit bending, & (granular & otherwise) synthesis, in juxtaposition & superimposition, directly & indirectly.
