The Glad Scientist is the pseudonym of Puerto-Rican artist Daniel Eric Carlos Hector Alberto Sabio. His works range from witty 2D digital creations to fully immersive code-driven installations.
They have garnered diverse international attention, from ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art) to Chale Wote Street Art Festival and beyond. He wields a BSc in Computational Media (Computer Science+Art) from Georgia Tech, and currently works closely with tech startups at the Atlanta incubator & seed fund TechSquare Labs.
His unique perspectives on technology’s role in art stem from a bizarre mixture of subcultures fused with insights gained from studies in some of music’s richest cultures, including Ghana, Turkey and Brazil.
Obsessed with cutting edge technology’s role in the artistic experience, his experimental approach to the creative process has evolved into the role of a FutureArt Technologist.

On Saturday 30th June, The Glad Scientist will first do a workshop called “VR Music: Inside and Out”, which will cover both the technique of composing music from within VR using SoundStage VR (sound synthesis techniques, unique affordances of the platform) and the basics of working with audio for VR, AR and spatial audio experiences. Later on, he will perform live at Common Ground.
