Critical Machine Opera is an event that combines experimental music with tactical media. It is Anti_Opera: a superposition of multiple spaces: stochastic synthesis, big-dense masses of sound and attacks with the use of crawlers; and internet robots for collecting data from the net.

He is involved in a number of projects focused on critical art strategies, hacktivism and tactical media.
