Airbag Killex discovered his first software sequencer almost 10 years ago.
Increasing the interest in electronic music and the familiarity with audio production software he immediatly wanted to feel more in touch with the job , buying the first from a long army of synths , drum samples and toys in 1998 at the age of fifteen.
Music is just one of the project he does related to computers and electronic stuff ; from cd artwork and graphics to video editing. Airbag Killex is also an appreciated media artist with his own mark La Maison Blue.
During 2001 he started the experimental project Velcro with Andrea Tumicelli , introducing the live performance into his own experience. Velcro's livesets are basically improvisation , supported by visuals created by Airbag Killex who also edited the new version of Nosferatu by F.W.Murnau included in Velcro's DVD , released in 2005. In 2006 Mandolin Records (London) released a Velcro's liveset recorded in summer 2005 , they appear on Digital Kranky Digital Kranky's Kraeka Compilation issue 4 and Sleepy Verse records has just released their second ep . They'll be on a split-record for fm/am records soon this year.

He's actually working with Team Skeme , from Texas , 2 tracks made till now ; he made 4 tracks as a remixer for the Offering from UK ; with Kaapad from France he just finished the second great tune.
Most of these collaborations are made through the net.
