I enjoy performing in many different settings, but I often play 50 shades of experimental music and I perform in some avant-garde art pieces. 


This is a short excerpt from my very first solo performance for percussion and electronics. Filmed by Sokio at Arete Gallery in Brooklyn, NY in January 2019.

Balún on Audiotree Live

ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man," a track from the band's 1983 album, Eliminator, has been covered to death. So when Xiu Xiu chose it for its Undercover, they knew they had to bring something new to the song, and that's exactly what they did.
