POL has been an electronic music producer since the early 1990s, nesting between the persistent electro dance and the dark backstage of the post-industrial civilization. At the decks or performing live, his footprints bring him to audiences either in the techno underworld of Geneva or clubs in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, New York, and elsewhere around the world. POL also creates sonic installations, such as the interactive Zen garden Tactile and The Sonic Garden. His latest work is Axis Mundi, which is inspired by astronomical observatories in India. Following his fall residency at MoCA Shanghai, POL presented Dunhuang Chart, a multi-diffusion sonic installation; and Nongfu Spring Bianzhong, a live sound performance with Chinese artist Ban Lei.
