Audio-visual artist and creative coder, Darien Brito’s practice spans computer graphics, sound art, generative art, and complex systems. Taking an autodidactic approach, Brito taught himself various programming languages to create art conducted by algorithmic processes. As a composer, the artist has produced works ranging solo instrument pieces to chamber music, orchestra, electronics, and music for theatre, film, opera, and contemporary dance. Brito works as developer and consultant for his peers, often collaborating to produce multidisciplinary technological works. Currently, the artist is focused on creating generative art, live performances, and installations using electronics, real-time computer graphics and light.
Based in The Hague, The Netherlands, Brito hails from Quito, Ecuador, and holds a BA from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague in music composition and an MA from the Institute of Sonology. The artist has shown work at venues, festivals and exhibitions around the world, including Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Perú, Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (ZKM), Germany; Today’s Art Festival, Netherlands; Cryptic Nights, London; Sónar Festival, Spain; Société des Arts Electroniques (SAT), Canada; Mutek Festival, Canada; Artblocks Curated, Online; and the Venice Biennale, Italy.
