Musician and Artist in Jakarta, Indonesia

I grew up listening to a lot of music, from The Beatles to Metallica, and from Walt Disney’s classical scoring to Indonesian traditional folklore. Music has always been my passion and born in the family who dedicate their life to music is something that I consider a privilege. In 1998, I started to experiment with guitar effects and found out more of one can do with sounds. Thus, it was the first time I was exposed to sound design and never look back. I consider my work as “Sonic collage” as some people say it is deep, complex and full of layers, resulting in an emotional journey that lives beyond your artistic mediums.

I have been involved in various projects ranging from music production, guitar player, synthesizer and programming in my own band, sound design for theaters, film scoring and commercials, exhibitions and live multimedia projects for big corporations. My works have been exhibited in Jakarta, Bandung, Jogjakarta, San Francisco and Berlin.

Experimenting with sounds, discovering new sonic territories, collaborating with other musicians and artists from the different field of expertise and using other mediums are my greatest passion, it’s what keeps me going to this day and it is the highest privilege to hear from people who share the same appreciation.
