My artistic process changes from one project to the next. Usually, I listen to a lot of music and improvise. I start exploring movement and building music simultaneously. I usually create various bits of music and movements, then I tie them together. When I create a movement, I use a system to filter ideas and help me stay on the right track. Usually, my approach is rather organic, and I try to follow my intuition as much as possible.
