Swiss-born Jan Schacher is an artist-researcher, instrumentalist, composer and digital artist who, among other things, studies how a musician’s body functions as a resonator and focal site for sound and presence. Schacher is interested in the spaces, structures, and processes of sound experience. In addition to practicing art, he has worked as a researcher at the University of the Arts Zurich and led research projects that address, among other things, musical gesture, immersive media, environmental and surround sound from an art and research perspective.
In 2014 Argentinean pianist and researcher specialized in tango music, Bárbara Varassi Pega, obtained her PhD degree on the thesis titled 'Creating and Re-creating Tangos: Artistic processes and innovations in Music by Pugliese, Salgán, Piazzolla and Beytelmann'. The Art of Tango is the re-work of her dissertation, published at Routledge.
