About our live coding visual artist
Santiago was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1982, in the heyday of personal computing and the emergence of video games. This coincidence of biography and cultural evolution led to his fascination with technologically derived aesthetics. His work utilizes code as a creative driver, employing mathematical principles, physic simulations, genetic algorithms, and AI to manipulate machine-interpretable routines.
Santiago regards coding as a form of transhumanistic poetry, a common ground between humans and machines, and his creative work centers around questions of technology’s synthetic nature, relation to society, and role in the evolution of the human species.

This immersive AV performance is an invitation to visit our inner child, providing a unique exploration of human authenticity. This experimental immersive experience draws inspiration from various human characteristics, notably instinctual innocence, insecurity, kindness, and perseverance.
PNEUMA also serves as an exploration of the possibilities for storytelling through visual art, electronic and acoustic soundscapes, and genre-blurring improvisational performance.
This piece is dedicated to the most special 6-year-old voice artist - Alex Eve Edwards. she is the main melody, the organs, the soul of PNEUMA. What an honor to collaborate with this powerful soul.

"It was a final project for the class Theory of Musical Synthesis led by SFCM - TAC program's extrodinary executive director & studio director Taurin Barrera, the goal was to translate and explain historical climate data through electronic music & immersive visual art, and turning them into a performance where people can feel encouraged to take action for the climate change.
THANK YOU Santi, what an honor to work with you, I'm forever grateful for your art, mind, and spirit. And San Francisco Conservatory of Music - TAC program, Climate Music, Chabot Space & Science Center, and Berkeley Lab .....🎉🎉 WOW I can't wait to go back to that magical planetarium, especially for the star show!!✨"
