Over the years, Pablo Montagne has dedicated much time to the practices of improvisation and composition, which he conceives also as de-composition and re-composition,with a leaning towards diverse and multiple aspects of performance in both solo and group playing.

He is dedicated to writing and accumulating scores of different and opposed nature, with the intention (or non intention) to organise, separate, act out, amplify, isolate or, in some cases, even inhibit some behavioural processes due to mental attitudes and automatic body movement.
