Riccardo Santoboni was born in Rome on 01.01.1964, has dedicated his life to music and musical research.

Fields of Research
As part of the music research deals with interactions between humans and computer systems (Human-Computer Interaction-) at the end of the generation, control and processing of sound by acoustic instruments and electroacoustic. To this end is doing, at the Faculty of Engineering 'University of Studies of Rome-Tor Vergata-through many thesis of which was a speaker, several projects for the implementation of hardware and software, professional quality low cost, for the interaction between performer / s, electronics and video. At the same deals with models of perception and psychoacoustics.
It 'been a consultant for the electro-acoustic section and the "Citadel of Science" in Bari
It 'was a musical consultant at the IRIS (Institute for Industrial Research and the Arts) of Paliano (FR) 1994 to 1998, where he studied the issues related to the electronic music and computer music.

Projects and achievements
He designed and built the system for interacting multi CAMARD (visual, acoustic and tactile) between performer and computer to control the generation and processing of sound.
He designed and built the SATURN software interface for the interaction between performer and computer live electronics, with which he received special mention at the composition F. Evangelists of New Consonance 2009, with the song "Resonabilis echo", for voice and live electronics.
He designed and built the software interface used for the FIA-BA samples and sound management of the electronic interaction between live performers and computers, used in the staging of the opera "The dwarves and the wizard Grandosio", composed by the writer , for solo voice, video, and ensemble.
