Sound Junction Autumn 2010
Sound Junction 2010-11 includes new sonic art from composers working at The University of Sheffield Sound Studios and talks / concerts from international guests. Our guests are key players in the development of the sonic arts: James Dashow has been a leading figure in the development of computer music since the 70s and was instrumental in the development of the MUSICx series of computer music languages; Jonty Harrison continues to direct BEAST (Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre, the internationally renowned loudspeaker performance system); Neal Farwell studied in the United States and has been a Lecturer in Music at The University of Bristol since 2002; Daniel Teruggi took over direction of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales from François Bayle in 1997. The GRM has a long and proud history and continues to look forward through its impressive suite of software, GRM-Tools. USSS has taken its own huge steps in a highly original direction over the past five years, using open source software to develop new tools and provide opportunities for students from year 1 undergraduate to PhD. We now boast an impressive pool of experimental artists and programmers and provide numerous exciting creative and technical educational opportunities in state-of-the-art facilities. I encourage you to come and share in what we do. (And if you want to present your work, please do sign up for the event on the 17th December).
