Yago de Quay is an award winning musician, producer and researcher. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, he went on to study Interactive Music and Sound Design at the pioneering FEUP institute, where he distinguished himself for his experiments with interactive nightclubs. His masters thesis was published as book: “Interactive Music 2.0: Stimulating Music Expression Inside Nightclubs.” Soon after, he produced his first electronic music album “Take You To The Party”. In 2011 the Portuguese government granted him a fellowship to pursue research in interactive music at UT Austin. His works prompted an award by The Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology for the creation of a brainwave audiovisual performance. During his doctoral studies, his groundbreaking research and concerts were featured in numerous magazines (Wired, The Daily Texan, Tag in-flight, Público), conferences (CMMR, ICMC, Si15, CAT Biennale, NIME, TEI), and TV shows (America’s Greatest Makers, El Hormiguero, Portugueses Pelo Mundo). In 2016 Yago completed his doctoral dissertation “The Development and Experience of Gesture and Brainwave Interaction in Audiovisual Performances.” Currently, he is starting up a performing arts company in NYC to offer innovative entertainment experiences for corporate events.
