The principal aim of this project is to develop and test a monitoring model for clinical psychological intervention with adolescents using a computer application integrating information from various key informers.
The development of an exploratory project with these characteristics is justified by the difficulty in implementing monitoring strategies in psychological intervention with children and adolescents at multiple moments, with multiple measures and using multiple informers.

The roots of "Narrative and Audiovisual Creation" date to 2013, at the crossing point between the lines of action of Theory of Art and Digital Art. Various aspects of audiovisual narrative are considered, from modes of creation (disruption and linearity, interactivity, omission...), their components (character, structure, visual and aesthetic expression...), to their relation with the social context (narrative as social expression, effects on the public, spectator and interactor...).

Intimacy is by nature internal, where we keep our invisible being. The individual, aware of his opaque body, establishes an idea of frontier. Creating intimacy is the proposal for a transparent body to feel points of contacts and states of complicity – in which the condition of sharing is essential. If we consider the artistic object as a type of frontier, this investigation intends to cross over the surface and interpret it over and above the work. More that the search for new meanings, it is a proposal for an encounter of ideas, bringing together various looks: the creator’s, the viewer’s, etc.

A Computational Auditory Scene Analysis Framework for Sound Segregation in Music Signals (CASA-FCT) Music is built from sound, ultimately resulting from an elaborate interaction between the sound-generating properties of physical objects (i.e. music instruments) and the sound perception abilities of the human auditory system.

Development of the original conception of modulatory musical space from the oldest theoretical tradition of Aristoxen and Zarlino to contemporary systematical approaches, specially applied to the diverse forms of chromatic music and other forms of musical construction. End goal will be the development of theoretical models and analytic tools able to concretize the dynamics of musical linearity and non-linearity, both in classical or erudite music and other forms of musical expressions, like jazz etc. This dynamics will defy meta-musical perceptual and theoretical issues related to the concept of musical time and phenomenological perception.

The doctoral work proposed in the area of Music Computing, arose from the desire to find mechanisms to use soundscapes as a source material for significant artistic creations. According, the proposal not only continues the work already completed, but is an artistic reinterpretation of the sound that surrounds us and the way in which it influences us.
