Graduated as a designer, and electronic music lover, Pierre integrates the WSK Collective at the end of 2008 as a VJ. Over the years and various experiences, he specialized in the creation of video scenography. He explors materials and shapes through a creative process to find the most performative projection supports and the most adapted to the contraints of VJing.

Experimenting in the fields of graphic design, photography and video, Zero presents a singular and polymorph video set, far from saturated and stroboscopic Vj sets. Always looking for new ways to see and think the visual, he draws his inspirations from the post-seventies cyberpunk movement and the sciences of information. The result is a unique, hypnotic, minimal or frenetic visual universe, but always in symbiosis with the music. With more that 100 sets performed throughout Europe, Asia and the United States in the past couple of years, he is one of the most active Vjs of the french scene, and regularly accompanies Dilemn in his live performances. In 2010, he gives up projection on classical screens and uses from now on a structure dedicated to his performances, therefore mixing VJing and videomapping.

After studying sound ingeniering at the CFMS of Lausanne, he integrates the association of Zoo/ Usine in 2007 as a sound technician. Attracted to VJing and scenography, he has been in charge of video at the genevan club from 2010 to 2012 and joined the Mapping Festival team as technical director in 2011. He is in charge of the video installations of the Outlook and Dimensions festivals, in Pula in Croatia.
