Moisés Horta Valenzuela (Tijuana, November 29 1988) is a musician, composer and sound artist. Taking inspiration from the sociocultural border context of Tijuana and being part of a generation exposed to the consumption of information via the Internet, the objective of his work is to express the ways in which the human mind is transformed by the constant movement between the virtual and physical realms. His work is characterized by exploring the juxtaposition of dual concepts such as tradition and hypermodernity, dystopia and utopia, low resolution and high definition using new technologies and electronic musical instruments, both software and hardware. He studied a Bachelor in Science in Audio Production at the Art Institute of San Diego, California (2010). He has participated in a series of workshops that focus on the use of technologies for the creation of multimedia art: Potencial de Acción: Introduction to Neurofeedback (Alumnos 27 Foundation, 2015), Biofeedback workshop (Biblioteca Vasconcelos/Centro de Cultura Digital, 2014), Introduction to physical computing (Protolab, 2010).
