Portuguese (Coimbra, 1974) intermedia composer and researcher.
His work takes on multiple forms such as installation, performance, theatre, photography, radio, video, recordings and sound pieces.
He creates sound and visual narratives that generate different interpretations and ambiguous emotions, with the aim to transport the audience to unknown places, and his works were listened and presented in museums, concert rooms and public spaces such as Aqui Base Tango, Casa das Caldeiras, Casa Municipal da Cultura de Cantanhede, Casino da Figueira, Cineteatro Messias, Santa Clara Gallery, Mercearia de Arte, Salão Brazil, Queen Anne Court (London, UK), Teatro Académico de Gil Vicente, Teatro Sá da Bandeira, The Hub (Dublin, IRE), and in events such as Freedom Festival, Salva-a-Terra Ecofestival, PAISAGENS NEUROLÓGICAS, [TRANS]acto and Universo Paralello Festival (Bahia, BR).
In 2015 he released his third ambient/IDM album, fragments of emotions, that confirms the path started in his earlier works (chilled winter sunrise, 2013; gentle breeze at sunset, 2011) and which recalls more than just simple sensations or faded memories, building each theme a boldly sensual and where each note has a distinct emotional tone.
He is currently developing his artistic language with the aim to foster innovative audio-visual processes, related with real-time sound visualization and exploring site-specific sound and image relations at the PhD in Art Studies at University of Coimbra (PT).
He is also a researcher of the Centre for 20th Century Interdisciplinary Studies of the University of Coimbra, and as a researcher his creation projects relate to specific places, exploring throughout the research and creation process the intersection between art, technology, identity and space, seeking to reflect about the importance of site-specific and sense of place.
He has presented the results of his research-creation projects in several places, such as, Aveiro City Museum, Botanical Garden of the University of Coimbra, Cathedral of Viseu, CCOP – Circulo Católico de Operários do Porto, Museum of Côa, Machado de Castro National Museum, Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Velha, Santa Joana Museum, São Francisco Convent, Stone Museum and Water Museum.
