His project, forgotten future, an electronic / epic-ambient musical concept built on cutting-edge sound synthesis, became a top seller in its genre in 2016 and continues to draw audiences to live performances, interactive shows worldwide and to its interactive online platform.

Dobos beta-tests and creates factory presets for sound synthesis and audio processing tools and gives talks in music technology and production culture topics. As a Distinguished Professor at University of Silicon Valley since 2012, he teaches a range of audio technology courses, directs audiovisual media production projects and builds pioneering, project-based collaborative learning concepts for a future-proof media education.
