HCI + SMC
My research contributes to the fields of HCI and sound & music computing (SMC) and has three foci:
- Technology: using cutting-edge technology in real-time interactive musical systems and creative algorithms borrowed from MIR and machine learning that can be useful for real-time performance and musical improvisation e.g. live coding or algorithmic music.
- Design: exploring novel aesthetics for real-time interactive musical systems e.g. tangible interfaces or wearable computing.
- Experience: bringing more egalitarian, collaborative and participatory experiences to the fore e.g. multichannel experiences, participatory performances, DIY workshops.
Intelligent CSCM Everywhere
I envision pushing the boundaries of technology, design, and experience towards more collaborative, egalitarian and sustainable spaces, what I term intelligent computer-supported collaborative music everywhere. My mission is to do interdisciplinary research that embraces techniques and research methods from engineering, social sciences, and the arts for creating a new generation of interactive music systems for music performance and social interaction in alignment with Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) principles.
