Alberto de Campo is Professor for Generative Art/Computational Art at the Universität der Künste Berlin. He is an active composer and performer of live electronic music and is a recognized expert on new musical interfaces and audiovisual performances with complex systems. He studied music composition at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz with Andrej Dobrowolski, Georg Haas, and Beat Furrer, and Jazz Guitar and Pedagogy at the Bruckner Conservatory in Linz with Adelhard Roidinger and Peter O'Mara. Further studies in electronic music included those with pioneers Curtis Roads and Stephen Travis Pope. De Campo holds a PhD from the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. He has been previously employed and conducted research at institutions such as IEM (Institute for Electronic Music, Graz), Technische Universität Berlin, CREATE (Center for Research in Electronic Art Technology) at the University of California, Kunsthochschule für Medien Cologne, and the Robert Schumann Hochschule (Düsseldorf). He has received numerous grants for his research projects including those from the Einstein Foundation Berlin and Future Funds of the Province of Styria (Austria).
