Charles Deluga is an audiovisual artist and systems designer based in San Diego, CA. His creative practice combines synthesis, spatial audio, ecoacoustics, and electronics to create immersive contexts for experiencing the math behind sound. Charles makes tools to generate and manipulate signals, exploring how technology can be used to translate them between auditory and visual domains. Under the alias Geometric Primitive, he uses oscilloscopes, laser sculpture, and multichannel audio to express geometry as a sentient, primordial presence. Charles has designed and produced A/V systems for architectural media installations across North America, including the Statue of Liberty Museum and MoMA PS1. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Computer Music at UCSD after earning a master’s in Music Technology from NYU.
