As a musician, he is primarily known for his electronic music projects like Hüpnosaurus, Kulgurid, and Kismabande. As a curator, some of his previous significant projects include the Hea Uus Heli festival and the record label Ulmeplaadid.

The sound installation "From Dusk till Dawn" invites observers to view one of Tartu's most symbolic areas with the eyes of a wanderer on the outskirts. During the play of shadows, before and after sunrise and sunset, and in the dark night in between, the area from the Inglisild bridge towards the Tartu Cathedral in the Toomemäe Park. The twilight is filled with sounds that sharpen the senses and help perceive the invisible: ways of relating to space that have over time been buried under different meanings or are just emerging.
