About Me: 

Born in Barranquilla Colombia, Juan Reyes (1962) composer, is also
founder and chair of MagInvent.ORG, an effort bringing together the
arts, science, and technology through collaborative projects like
Artelab and expyeZp, which further support development of new music
and evolution on the electronic arts in Latin America. He has pursued
degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics and Music aiming towards
Computer Music and its related fields at the University of Tampa, and
at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) in
Stanford University. Among a variety of subjects in music and
acoustics he has studied with John Chowning, Chris Chafe, Julius Smith
III, Jonathan Berger, Brian Ferneyhough, Terry Mohn and Max
Mathews. Current interest and research topics are focused around
tactile and haptic measures to manipulate gesture and acoustical
environments as well as on musical expression. Among his works, mostly
related to computer music, there are compositions for the stage,
dance, video, sound installations and chamber pieces. His research has
been published on several journals and much of his music has been
performed around the world.
