Cellectric, works for E-Cello and Live Electronics by Antonis Pratsinakis
About the E-cello: This unique instrument is combined with different amplifications, analogue and electronic sound control pedals and or computers to give the performer the ability to create evolved sounds by changing tone, timbre, colour and the spectrum of sound.

He has also participated in numerous music and music theatre productions with Kameroperahuis, Ergon Ensemble, Veenfabriek, Atlas Ensemble, Sonnevanck, Toneelgroep Amsterdam, and Korzo Theater.
