ABOUT THE EDITORS

Alberto de Campo - http://medienhaus.udk-berlin.de/pages/Dr._Alberto_De_Campo
Prof. Alberto de Campo is a composer and performer, and teaches Generative Art/Computational Art.

After studying classical composition, jazz guitar and electronic/computer music in Austria and the U.S., he has worked as Research Director at CREATE, UC Santa Barbara, and taught computer music and sound art at Music University Graz and Media Arts Academy Cologne. He was the Edgard Varese guest professor for Electronic Music at Technical University Berlin in 2005, and was lead researcher in the SonEnvir project (2005-2007), an interdisciplinary research venture on sonifying scientific data from different domains. In 2007, he became Professor for Music Informatics at Music University Duesseldorf, and since 2009, he is Professor for Generative Art/Computational Art at the University for the Arts Berlin.

He explores a wide range of topics in collaborations with other artists and students: Code-based network music performance, biologically informed/inspired art such as the project Varia Zoosystematica, hybrid audiovisual performance instruments and interactive systems, and improvisation strategies in different contexts.


MarkDavid Hosale - http://www.mdhosale.com
Dr. MarkDavid Hosale is a media artist and composer. MarkDavid holds a Ph.D. in Media Arts and Technology from the University of California; MarkDavid currently holds a position as an Assistant Professor in Digital Media in the Fine Arts Faculty of York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. MarkDavid has had works exhibited and performed internationally works in media arts and music at conferences, universities, and festivals and has given lectures and taught internationally at institutions in Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, Canada, and the United States.

The connecting tissue of Professor Hosale’s interdisciplinary research and work lies in his exploration of nonlinear narrative as a representation of information, time, and space. His research and work also explores the boundaries between the virtual and the physical world. Whether as part of an installation or performance work, the virtual spaces he creates are technologically transparent, sophisticated and virtuosic, as well as intuitive to experience and use.


Sana Murrani - http://sanamurrani.me.uk
Dr. Sana Murrani is an experimental architect, and currently holds the position of Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Plymouth, UK. She studied Architecture in Baghdad University School of Architecture, graduating in 2000, and obtained her masters degree from the same school in 2003. She is a member of the Planetary Collegium's CAiiA-Hub in Plymouth, UK where she undertook her PhD under the supervision of Roy Ascott (President of Planetary Collegium). Murrani has a interest in architectural theory of transdisciplinary research particularly experimental and interactive work between the fields of technoscience and art/architecture. Her work investigates the impact of implementing second-order cybernetics and interactive technologies on the creation of temporary and generative situations in architecture through explorations of design processes derived from biological systems, different media of representation and perceptual experiences that challenge our consciousness.
