The Workers Union Ensemble will perform at the legendary Turner Sims Concert Hall at 1pm, 30th April 2012. The programme includes my own Ripped Up, pieces by by Adam Fergler, Michael Finnissy, Matthew Kaner and a brand new work by Ryan Latimer.
I am off to Ann Arbour, Michigan USA, in May for the 12th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME). I’ll be presenting a demo of the ‘Interactive Music Awareness Programme’ (IMAP) for Cochlear Implant Users I’ve developed with the ‘Compositions for Cochlear Implantees’ team at the University of Southampton. Should be some fantastic concerts and stuff to see while I’m there.
I recently started work as the AHRC Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Composition for Cochlear Implant Users at the University of Southampton. This exciting job involves helping devise and run workshops, developing a music training program and writing new pieces for CI users. I’m working in the Music Department, the Institute for Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) and the South of England Cochlear Implant Centre (SOECIC) at the University of Southampton. I’ve been finding my feet for the past few weeks and am really enjoying the work. You can read some info about the project at the Southampton website. I’ll keep updating about any new pieces and activities as they come up!
