New paper just published
I recently presented a paper, Variability and the spatial setting: emergent properties and sound relationships in acousmatic music, at the EMS Network conference. It was great to present this paper at the conference last month in Leicester, and it’s also great to see it now available online. In it I discuss a classic electroacoustic work, Capture éphémère, by the inspirational Bernard Parmegiani.
First concert of 2021
It was great to finally have in-person concerts resume here at Bournemouth University last Thursday. Thanks to all who attended. I diffused two of my compositions, and my friend and colleague Panos Amelidis contributed his excellent music to the programme. Looking forward to further events in 2022!
New track on Soundlapse album
I’m really please to share the news that I have a new composition, Reflecting Cau Cau and Parque Urbana El Bosque, included on the Soundlapse album, just released by German label Gruenrekorder. https://www.gruenrekorder.de/?page_id=18999
The Soundlapse project (2019-22) is an interdisciplinary research initiative highlighting the acoustical heritage of wetlands in the south of Chile. Eight sound artists were commissioned to compose works using periodic field recordings of the “Parque Urbano El Bosque” wetland soundscapes in Valdivia. The album includes works by Aki Pasoulas, Pete Stollery, Francisco López, Alejandro Albornoz, Brona Martin, Rob Mackay and Felipe Otondo.
It was pleasure to be involved!
Paper at EMS-Network conference 10–13 November 2021
I’ll be presenting a paper at the Electroacoustic Music Studies Network Conference 2021 next week at De Montfort University, Leicester. The paper is titled Variability and the spatial setting: emergent properties and sound relationships in acousmatic music. I’m really looking forward to hearing the other presentations and hearing some great music in concert.
