His artistic and pedagogical activities have led him to explore other music universes, such as collective improvisation, sound-painting - which he practices regularly with his 12 saxophones ensemble- or the music theathe with BHL Trio  (saxophones, clarinets and keyboards-percussions), an original band with a repertoire full of humour, poetry, french songs improvisation, recipes and many other facts. In 2011, he joined the group “Quartoch et les Gardiens du Skaï” and adopted a fusion style combining jazz, pop and funk to create their sensitive, explosive and original compositions.
