On Wednesday 28th February 2018 guest composer Dr Annie Mahtani, University of Birmingham and Birmingham Electroacoustic Sound Theatre (BEAST), featured in a concert of multi-channel electroacoustic music at Bournemouth University. Organised by myself, and with support from the EMERGE and Creative Technology research groups, the varied programme featured works from BEAST and Bournemouth University composers.
Annie Mahtani presented and diffused three compositions (Inversions; Past Links; Aeolian) along with works by fellow BEAST composers James Carpenter (Pent-Up) and Nikki Sheth (Orford Ness). I diffused my recent multi-channel electroacoustic work Traces of Play whilst my colleague Panos Amelidis (pictured here sound-checking) diffused two compositions: Bird Train and Cracks.
Student volunteers from the BSc Music & Sound Production Technology degree at Bournemouth University provided crucial help rigging the loudspeaker system.
Thanks to all who attended and persevered despite the cold conditions!
