J. Camilo Sanchez Carranco is a sound artist based in Helsinki, Finland. Camilo first got in touch with experimental music by seeking noise. He then got immersed in field recording and acousmatic music during his bachelor studies. Over his master studies at Media Lab Camilo found an attraction towards electronic sounds and movement interaction. This curiosity inspired him to explore the equilibrium between sound synthesis and the organic nature of body movements. This approach is still palpable in the spatial and exploratory aspect of his works and especially in his interactive installations.
Camilo’s works vary from experimental live coding performances, DIY instruments to multichannel audio and interactive installations.
Recently, Liisi Soroush, John Lee & Camilo founded the [Konvolv_] collective. [Konvolv_] explores and creates immersive art for different social spaces. Their background research is based on socio-politics, media archaeology, phenomenology and acoustic ecology. On the technological side, [Konvolv_] works with ambisonic set-ups in combination with generative processes and subtle embodied interaction.
Camilo holds a Bphil in Musicology by the Autonomous University of Madrid and an MA in New Media: Sound in New Media by Aalto University.
Camilo has been part of the Sound and Physical Interaction (SOPI) research group at Aalto University. His works have been presented in different festivals and museums such as MuteFest’16 (FI), DASH’16 (FI), Nord+Mix‘17 (LT), The Museum of Technology‘17 (FI), The National Museum of Finland‘17 (FI), Flash Vallisaari‘18 (FI) and Kontula Electronic‘19 (FI).
