Professor Ricardo Climent
Ricardo is a Professor of Interactive Music Composition at University of Manchester, UK, where he started NOVARS in 2007 and served as director since then. He moved to Manchester from SARC, the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queens University, Belfast, where he was music staff for five years. His experience working at these two state-of-the-art Computer Music Centres in UK placed him in a privileged position to understand the complexities of working at the intersections of Music, Science and Engineering. He likes cycling and meeting friends (to play ping-pong, buy DDR stuff or eat Vietnamese food). He used to jump hurdles (athletics), run cross-country and practice windsurfing. He enjoys encrypting things. In 2011 he joined the 'cycle to work' scheme and deeply regret not having done this before!
