Pablo Padilla Jargstorf – Live Computer Music.Pablo A. Padilla Jargstorf, born in Madrid in1975, is an architect and an artist. After starting his formal music education at a very young age, with piano as his primary instrument, towards the end of the 1990s he began to experiment with sound art and composition, while completing his architecture studies. From the outset, he has specialized in the field of sensory distortion, creating new environments in pre-existing places by disfiguring them. His relationship with architecture has led him to work on site-specific installations. There he explores the spatial side of sound, and its interaction with visual and tactile feedback, creating a whole sensual scene. http://www.jargstorf.com/
