Jônatas Manzolli is dedicated to interdisciplinary research, promoting dialogue between Science and the Arts. His areas of study include Music Composition, Computational Music, Computer-Aided Music Analysis, and Human-Computer Interaction in Artistic Domains. He holds the position of Full Professor at the Institute of Arts at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), specializing in Musical Composition. Over the past 25 years, he has led research at the Interdisciplinary Nucleus for Sound Studies (NICS/Unicamp). With a team of musicologists, composers, performing artists, engineers, and computer scientists, he has co-authored over 250 articles published in renowned journals and conferences, spanning diverse disciplines. As an educator within the Postgraduate Program in Music, he has devoted himself to training a new generation of researchers, overseeing the completion of over 25 doctoral and master's degrees. Many of his former students hold positions in prestigious institutions in Brazil and abroad. In addition to his academic leadership at UNICAMP, Jônatas has collaborated with prestigious, internationally renowned research centers. He served as a visiting researcher at the Neuroinformatics Institute at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology-ETH, Zurich, and at the Synthetic, Perceptive, Emotive, and Cognitive Systems Lab (SPECS) at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona. Since 2016, he has collaborated with the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Music, Media, and Technology (CIRMMT) at McGill University. Recently, he became a collaborator at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behavior in the Netherlands in 2022. As a composer, Jônatas has built an international career focus on creating contemporary music using a multidisciplinary approach that includes electroacoustic elements. His compositions encompass various forms, including chamber music and orchestral settings. Some works in his portfolio include "Reflexões" for Symphony Orchestra and interactive audiovisuals (2011), "Cantoria" for String Orchestra (2012), "Reação em Cadeia" for 21 Violoncellos (2013), and "Salmo 23" for four Soloists, Choir, and Orchestra (2015). He has composed three operas, including "Descobertas" (2016), multimodal opera for chamber orchestra, vocal performance, dance, immersive visuals, and interactive sound diffusion system. His opera "Pássaros de Papel," received the "Arts & Arts Literacy" award from the Rockefeller Foundation (2018-2023). Continuously involved in compositional projects, Jônatas has created works that bridge the gap between Art and Science, such as the interactive soundtrack for "Ada: Intelligent Space" (2002), "Re(PER)curso" (2007), which premiered at the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MacBa), and the "Multimodal Brain Orchestra" (2009), showcased at the European Future Technologies Conference in Prague. Currently, Jônatas volunteers as a full professor in the Department of Informatics Engineering (DEI) at Coimbra University and conducts research at INET-md, Department of Communication and Arts (DeCA) at the University of Aveiro. https://orcid.org/0000-0003-4257-7118 https://scholar.google.com.br/citations?hl=en&user=EmZsZLoAAAAJ
