The tape “Imaginary Paintings”, was a noisetape made by the idea of making imaginary paintings, made by sounds instead of a brush.

Next to other projects which he collaborated with, like Random Reflections, Alfa and R.O.T., many Picturesque works were based on structured sound and accident, using guitar, samples, electronics and toys, which did result in the cd-r “The Chaotic Comfort of Electronic Sex.”.
