Balandino is Associate Researcher at the Embodied AudioVisual Interaction Unit (EAVI) at Goldsmiths, University of London. He is currently working on the ERC funded project: BioMusic leat by Proff. Atau Tanaka.

He started his musical studies at A. Casella Conservatoire of L’Aquila (Italy) in 2007, where he gained knowledge about contemporary composition, electroacoustic, acoustics, psychoacoustics, signal processing, sound design, music history and multimedia application. In the meantime, he has been working from 2009 until 2013 at the CRM - Centro Ricerche Musicali di Roma as artistic, informatics and technical assistant. He completed his undergraduate studies in 2013 with a thesis regarding the use and development of an application for the Tangible User Interface Metis.
