I hold a PhD in Philosophy of Music and Technology, a MA in Communication Studies and a Graduation degree in Philosophy. I have musical education (organ, trumpet) and training in editing and sound production, with work done as a composer, musician and sound designer for more than 20 years. My approach to music making is informed by the use of digital and analogue instruments and studio tools, and I have been involved in several projects including creating music for films, music for children, electronic music and sound experimentation. Parallel to this activity, I have conducted research on sound, music and aesthetics. With published articles and participation in national and international conferences, I teach in Lisbon, on aesthetics, music and sound editing.
