He came to the integration of music with psycho-physical techniques in 2002 with his participation in the Guitar Craft courses directed by guitarist Robert Fripp. In these intensive seminars, he learned the use of a new standard tuning (C G D A E g) and has been introduced to specific techniques, amongst which collective improvisations, known as “Circulations”. Together with perfecting modern guitar techniques, he had the opportunity to practise specific exercises which  encourage the awakening and activation of consciousness, the division of attention, the development of coordination and understanding of the body, and deep relaxation techniques. Through Alexander Technique he has developed a sound awareness of posture.
