Rodrigo Guzman de S.M. (RSM)

Mexico City, 1988

 

 

Born in Mexico City, RSM (Rodrigo Guzman) is a composer, interdisciplinary artist, and art historian. He is interested in the bridging of the artistic, the scientific and the technological. In his artistic work, he explores diverse phenomena that challenge our notions of scientific certainty and individual intuition, such as the mapping of galaxies or the function of insect singing. In his music, RSM seeks to find inspiration in language and the environment, both natural and constructed. He seeks to work on projects that require collaboration across different disciplines so he often reaches out to scientists, engineers, technologists, philosophers, and the like. He studied violin and music theory in Mexico City, and has developed artistic projects through exhibitions and residencies in Mexico City, Estonia, Lithuania, New Mexico and New York. RSM currently lives and works between New York and Vienna.
