Born in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, he is known as an interdisciplinary designer and electronic musician who produces work that explores the realms of the internet through multimedia installation which mostly involves audience participation, ranging from sound design to virtual reality experiences. His work raises questions of the relation between human, media and society within mediated information and communication as well as how digital and physical environments are interconnected. 
Between 2011 and 2016 he studied interior design at Institut Teknologi Bandung, while he developed his artistic practice and his interest in music and technology. In 2018, he moved to the Netherlands to study scenography at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht. He has been participating in several exhibitions and festivals such as Digital Design Weekend, Bandung International Digital Arts Festival, Bandung New Emergence, London Design Biennale, Archipelago Festival, Indonesia Netaudio Festival, CTM Festival Berlin, Amsterdam Fringe Festival and Prague Quadrennial.
 
His musical work is generally a mixture between ambient soundscape and cinematic atmosphere. It utilizes the electronic sounds such as sine wave and glitches, layered with droning textures and repetitive patterns within evolving composition. The focus of his music is not about the technicality of the production, but rather on how to evoke an emotion and emerge the sense of certain spaces or circumstances. It attempts to generate an imagery through auditory perception.
