On this occasion I installed a developed version of the sound installation from that showing at BEAF in May 2019. This new version featured new bird-call audio and field recordings made in and around the Horniman Museum, in addition to the Dorset ecosystem recordings. The interactions were refined and re-programmed, allowing visitors to both excite and severely constrain the growth of the ‘bird population’.
It was a fantastic event, and considerable thanks go to Marcus Leadley at Goldsmiths for his exceptional organisation and loan of loudspeakers.
I’m delighted to announce that ‘Traces of Play’ is programmed at Sonorities Festival Belfast 2020, 22-25 April 2020.
I’ll be diffusing my composition ‘Traces of Play’ on Thursday 12th September at the Convergence International Conference/Festival of Music, Technology & Ideas. The theme of the conference is ‘Complexity & Simplicity’, with a keynote speech from computer music legend Curtis Roads. The programme looks to be really varied and high quality, so I’m honoured to have been selected.
I’m delighted to announce that Traces of Play was awarded 2nd prize in the Klang! International Electroacoustic Composition Competition 2019. This is the 7th year of the Klang! competition and it has rapidly become established as one of the most significant prizes in the field.
It is a huge honour to receive this prize amid a highly esteemed group of finalists. Congratulations to all the selected composers.
