Committed to new music, he has performed and premiered concertos by Laurent Durupt, Bernd Alois Zimmermann, and Benjamin Attahir, and was a founder member of the WARN!NG Collective, a group that develops and commissions new works, experimenting with sound painting, improvisation and innovative performance experiences. He recently released an album on Delphian of Mozart violin sonatas performed on the oboe.
