Bellona is an intermedia artist/composer who specializes in digital technologies

Bellona's work explores the enactive body and physical embodiment in music, especially live performance of digital musical instruments. His work's consideration of site-specific sound and choreographic composition widen Bellona's research into broader themes of data-driven music and sound-art installations. Bellona is a co-director of Harmonic Laboratory, an interdisciplinary arts collective focused on art and technology collaborations.

Bellona's music and intermedia work have been shown internationally including Kyma International Sound Symposium (KISS); Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS); International Computer Music Conference (ICMC); Interactive Media Arts Conference (IMAC); Symposium on Laptop Ensembles and Orchestras (SLEO); with special performances at the Casa da Musica (Porto, Portugal) and CCRMA (Palo Alto, CA).
