Juan Hernández and Ángela Hoyos play together in a duo project called Ulrica Duo, experimenting and improvising with sound – to movement – to color synesthesia, and creating scenes in which the presence of the performers draws morphing characters.   Ulrica Duo's music is created with the computer, and performed with wearable devices, and other physical interfaces.

CV - Arts Research / Education

Juan and Ángela work as teachers in the Schools of Music (Arts Faculty) and Aesthetics (Architecture and Design Faculty) at Javeriana University, in Bogotá. They are currently developing research projects at the university related to cross-modal perception in artworks involving media technologies, focusing on synesthesia and kinesthesia.

Juan has a BA on Music with a minor on Sound Engineering, and Ángela has a BSc in Electronics Engineering. Between 2007 and 2009 they studied at the C:Art: Media program in Gothenburg, Sweden, and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts with specialization in Digital Media.
