    Roberto Pugliese © Roberto Pugliese
    After having taken his Master degree in 2008 in electronic music at the Conservatorio San Pietro a Majella in Naples, with M° Agostino di Scipio, Roberto Pugliese divides his time between teaching at the same institution (musical sistems and electroacustic- and informatic laboratory), playing music and realising sound installations. Roberto Pugliese’s research draws its energy mainly from two tendencies in art, sound art and that of the kinetic and programmed art. Using mechanical equipments driven by software that interact with the surrounding environment and the user, Roberto Pugliese intends to examine new points of research to the phenomena attached to sound, analysis of the processes that use the human psyche structures to differentiate natural from artificial ones (both acoustic and visual), on the relationship between man and technology and the relationship between art and technology, giving a role no less important to the visual aspect. The sound then becomes both the object of research, of acoustic and visual means of expression, vital energy that animates the inanimate, to guide the investigation and stimulate the psyche and the human perception.
    Pugliese has shown his works internationally in exhibitions at museums and galleries including: Teatro Anatomico, Bologna; Museo degli Affreschi, Verona; IED, Madrid; Muse, Trento; Tenuta Lo Scompiglio, Vorno; Villa Brandolini, Pieve di Soligo; TRA, Treviso; Gervasuti Foundation, Venice; Galerie Mazzoli, Berlin; Città della Scienza, Naples; Galleria Studio la Cittá, Verona; Palazzo Barberini, GNAM and Palazzo delle esposizioni, Rome; ZKM, Karlsruhe; Marfa, Texas. He was awarded among others at: Ars electronica, Linz; Telefonica Foundation, Madrid; VAF, Rome.
