Sageev Oore received his MSc and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Geoffrey Hinton. His PhD research, in
which he developed a high-degree-of-freedom interface for manipulating a virtual puppet, was also co-supervised by Demetri Terzopoulos. His undergraduate degree was in Mathematics & Computer Science from Dalhousie University.
As a musician, Sageev embraces a wide range of influences: in his first appearance with Symphony Nova Scotia he performed a Mozart piano concerto, and in his most recent appearance with them, he performed as a member of multiple-ECMA winning jazz/world music group Gypsophilia, an event for which he also wrote and arranged an original klezmer-influenced score that was premiered by the symphony together with the 7-piece ensemble. Together with his brother Dani Oore, and with CBC Radio, Dani and Sageev co-produced/co-composed/co-performed a duo instrumental CD, ``Radical Cycle’’, combining classical art songs with improvisation, nominated for a 2013 ECMA for Best Classical Recording, reviewed as "..full of beauty, daring and humour, inspired by themes plucked from the realm of dreams, where anything can happen.."
