The Glad Scientist is the pseudonym of Puerto Rican new media artist Daniel Sabio. His works range from igniting live virtual reality concerts to immersive code-driven installations.
They have garnered diverse international attention, from ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art) to SXSW to Bass Coast Festival, and placed him in shows alongside Michio Kaku, Waka Flocka and Molly Soda.
He wields a BS in Computational Media (Computer Science+Art) from Georgia Tech, contributes regularly to IMRSV Arts, and is a founder of the Art in Tech Atlanta Meetup and VLSC Records, an international indie label.
In the past year, his creative work has been recognized through a number of initiatives, including Oculus Launchpad, Art Omi:Music Fellowship, Zoo Labs Music Accelerator, IDEO CoLab Fellowship, and Berlin Sessions Residency.
His unique perspectives on technology’s connection to the human spirit derive from a mixture of internet subcultures fused with insights from studies in some of music’s richest cultures, including Ghana, Turkey and Brazil. Now based in Berlin, he continues this exploration with a focus on immersive media, sound design, and performance.
