Alberto de Campo is a musician and composer who creates experimental art with electronic and computational means. He plays solo, in ensembles like Trio Brachiale, powerbooks_unplugged, Republic111, and plays and works with artists like Mario de Vega, Marcus Schmickler, Hannes Hoelzl, Julian Rohrhuber and others. His performance setups combine code and networks as interfaces, self-written software, various interfaces and choice analog devices. Recently he has been developing the concept of metacontrol, with the aim of losing control to gain influence.
As professor for generative art / computational art at the University of the Arts Berlin, he also creates complex installations and performance concepts inspired by second-order cybernetics and radical constructivism, often with groups of collaborators such as the Society for Nontrivial Pursuits.
