Xavi Manzanares is an Architect by the ETSAB / UPC (2001). Within the framework of Architecture he has been developing an unconventional praxis of the profession in collaborations with Straddle3 (Experimental and Social Architecture), NSP (bioarchitecture) or Congoritme / Bea Goller Arqs (Architecture and Research Design). After a performative and luthieristic journey in the framework of experimental music under the dAAX identity -which has led him to tour different stages and festivals around the world since 2003-, in recent years he has been collaborating on projects located at the intersections of the arts, sciences and technologies, within the framework of the Open culture. The most relevant are the research projects Ondas Hápticas, Enjambres, Paisajes Aurales, MobilityLab and Sonic Spaces. Their artistic practice combines sonology, experimental music, electronic arts, creative programming, interaction design, as well as maker practices, with a critical engineering perspective. The common objective in these practices is to situate research scenarios as creative engines and materialization of experiments, actions and scenarios oriented to a perceptive, cognitive and sensitive aspect, without forgetting their philosophical, ethical and biopolitical implications. Insistent practitioner of the Open culture since 2003 in its variants (Open Culture / Research / Techs) he has published the research Ondas Hápticas (started in 2015), several sound releases, as well as a series of creative applications accessible and open.
