DJ at Radio 1 in Prague since 1994, temporary student of gamelan music at Institute of Art of Indonesia in Yogyakarta, since 2005 both passive (music journalist, promoter) and active (trumpets, clarinet, egg cutters, broom etc.) explorer of non-idiomatic improvisation. His first experiences with bands unwind from the cooperation with Eduardo Borsuci In Optima Forma, which resulted in Zvuková brigáda (Sound brigade). In 2009, Chaos und Logos came into the world, which is a trio. A year later, he became one of the founding members of improvisation ensemble IQ+1 which released their debut "tváří v tvář" in summer 2011. With korean experimenter Ryu Hankil they started Yanagi duo where there share their common interest in musical structures hidden in various and variously vibrating objects which enables a very natural communication through rolling typewriter or toothpicks bouncing along a plastic plate.
