He published several works as solo artist with the name of "Remodel”, with inspiration from great composers, including Alva noto, Murcof and Nils Frahm.  His music tries to create an ambience of sound to soothe, revive and surprise the listener, mixing acoustic instruments with ambient soundscapes.
