My approach look on new form of instrument mainly on hybrid one’s which mean to insert electro-mechanism to an acoustic/physic element.
The combination impart specific result whose can’t be made other way — or rather, electronic devices don't give me the same 'pleasure'.
The computer control allow and extend the sound structure by giving singular effects and processus.
I don’t try to reproduce existing instrument or gesture but to suggest new sounds experiences. They’re gathering ancestral lutherie technics and digital/electronic engineering.
The Magneton is a metal string instrument drive by magnetic bows, built around a steel structure
6 strings instruments drives by e-bows and amplified with pick-up's and contact mic. Built on an entire wood body. That's my personnal instrument and one's of the most powerfull

The girolum is based on a wood body with nylon strings 'whiped' by a stick handled by the rotation of motors.
