He makes music and animations, creates short films, videos and sleeve designs. He has made music videos for Mogwai, Jamie Lidell and Hudson Mohawke. His works are best described as a merge between music production and installation art.

His created animation for the album trailer effectively accompanies electronic music and shows off his skills as an animator and visual artist. This animation is a detailed and complex fantasy world of futuristic structures and mechanisms inhabiting a monochromatic environment. Mechanical mountainous terrain is a successful interpretation of the cold, ambient and atmospheric instrumental music sounds.
