b. 1993, Marseille
Hugo Scurto is a PhD student in the Sound Music Movement Interaction group at IRCAM, under the supervision of Frédéric Bevilacqua.
A former Cité de la Musique de Marseille attendee, he graduated in Physics from École Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay, and received the MSc in Engineering from Sorbonne Université. He worked one year as visiting researcher at Goldsmiths’ College with Rebecca Fiebrink.
His research intertwines science, design, and art approaches to study, develop, and inquire machine learning technology situated in human and non-human environments. Drawing insight from music, cybernetics, and spirituality, his creations seek to nurture a sense of human learning toward our shared environments, by exploring new cultural configurations between things, machines, and humans.
Hugo’s collaborations and personal works have been featured at national places such as GMEM / Friche la Belle de Mai, Instants Chavirés, JIM, or Lutherie Urbaine, and published in international conferences such as SIGGRAPH, NIME, ICMC, or SMC. He recently cofounded the wolfgang collective in a desire to unite scientists, designers, artists, and engineers in the production and dissemination of interdisciplinary art and design projects.
