About me

MC

I’m a designer and musician.

I’m an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto, and a researcher at INESC TEC. I’m currently a fellow at V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media.

I collaborate with Pedro Tudela in the @c project since 2000, working often with LIA in audiovisual performances or installations. In 2003 we started the Crónica label where we’ve been releasing experimental and electronic music.

I completed my PhD thesis in early 2011. Following that, I published the book Artificial Aesthetics: Creative Practices in Computational Art and Design in 2016.

I help to organize the xCoAx conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X, with previous editions in Bergamo 2013, Porto 2014, Glasgow 2015, Bergamo 2016, Lisbon 2017, and Madrid 2018, and an upcoming in Milan 2019. I also helped to organize the Invisible Places symposium (2014 in Viseu, 2017 in Ponta Delgada), ICLI 2014 and ICLI 2018.
