João Polido Gomes is a Portuguese composer and artist. He works primarily with sound and video and releases/performs music under his last name, as Polido.

He released the album Time Is When in 2017 through USA-based label Lynn and Boyce Hatti (his own imprint), balancing mystique and emotional tug throughout fourteen tracks or collages zoning in on silence, time and suggestion.

His last live performances carried that energy onwards, delicate yet abrupt constructions seeking new land. He hosted the monthly radio show Dramgunt on the online radio Radio Quantica and continues to collaborate as sound director and composer for other artists such as Filipa César, Louis Henderson and Marte Eknæs & Michael Amstad.
