Rubén Patiño is an artist working in the field of electronic music, operating in a hybrid territory that incorporates elements of club culture and contemporary art. Most of Patiño's work takes shape as time-based proposals that incorporate sound, light, video, text, and diverse materials.
Holding a special interested in distorting the perception of space and in involving the audience, Patiño’s practice tends to challenge standardised formats of presentation and explores the boundaries between concert, public event, and installation.
Among his collaborations with Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, Arnau Sala, and Daniele Guerini, Patiño works under the name of Lag OS; an ongoing project based on the sonic exploration of an imaginary landscape that is a mysterious swamp. Patiño is also part of the project N.M.O., a fluxus techno / military space music unit together with Morten J. Olsen that also appears within the Nusasonic programme.
