Pía Baltazar is an intermedia composer and SAT's new Directress of Research. She has a unique background combining engineering, art philosophy and musical composition, as her artistic and technological research work has been developing for over twenty years at the intersection of interactive design and artistic production.
Passionate about developing open-source digital tools for intermedia creation, she coordinates the ossia.io initiative, which develops the ossia score interactive sequencer and the libossia library for interoperability. The latter is essentially based on the results of the Jamoma open source initiative, which she helped coordinate from 2006 to 2016. Through these tools, she is exploring the question of the temporal writing of interaction and intermedia orchestration. More generally, her research interests focus on the expressive possibilities of intersensoriality and the embodied nature of the creative process.
