His music has been presented in venues such as the Melbourne Recital Hall,  National Concert Hall Dublin, Queen Elizabeth Hall,  Ars Electronica, Casa da Música, and in events such as Weimarer Frühjahrstage fur zeitgenössische Musik, Wien Modern Festival, Cynetart and Música Viva. His work as a pianist and improvisor has been released by Creative Source Recordings and he has collaborated with musicians such as Chris Brown, Mark Applebaum, Carlos Zingaro, Evan Parker and Pauline Oliveros. Pedro has recently led participatory projects involving communities in Belfast and favelas in Maré, Rio de Janeiro.
