Javier Jaimovich is a researcher from Santiago, Chile, interested in the development of new interactive instruments for musical expression.

After completing his BA in Music Technology at Universidad de Chile in 2004, Javier was offered a position as Teaching Assistant in the same University, where he worked during 3 years before leaving to pursue an MA in Sonic Arts at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queen’s University Belfast. Currently, Javier holds a lecturing position (with leave) at Universidad de Chile, where he is expected to return after finishing his postgraduate studies.

In Belfast he completed his MA, studying topics as psychoacoustics, surround sound, programming for musical applications and interactive performance systems (Ground Me!). For his dissertation he specialized in pattern recognition of physiological signals in music performers. Currently, Javier is a PhD candidate at SARC researching the use of biosignals and emotion for musical performance, within the MuSE research group.

Besides his academic work, Javier performed and recorded his first album with the band Sicotropa in Chile, and has worked as a sound engineer in different productions, including the experimental album Experiencias Sonoras.
