How would you describe your way of working? 
I love sketching and planning my works. Sometimes, the sketch ends up being the score for the performers, and sometimes, I forget the sketch and the piece ends up being completely something else. I have recently being using a lot of spectral analyses from sounds coming from certain environments, so that the pitch and rhythm materials can create a relation between what the performers are producing and these environments.
