Symposia 2011-2012

Symposium 1: Saturday 5 November 2011
Theme: what do we want from analysis of electroacoustic music and how might we get it?
Location: Institute of Creative Technologies, Gateway Street, Leicester
Time: 10.30-17.30
Chair: Simon Emmerson
Keynote: Michael Clarke (University of Huddersfield)

This is no ordinary Symposium. Invited speakers will give 10 minute (max) presentations with one slide (if needed); there will be much more time for discussion; the field has been divided into arbitrary cliché genres; we must start somewhere and these may well be critiqued; such as – post-concrète and the acousmatics; soundscape and real world reference; glitch, hacking, failure aesthetics; sound art, installation and the site-specific; algorithmic and interactive; live instrumental (mixed and live electronics); live post-instrumental (hardware hacking, found and constructed instruments); electronica/IDM related; audio in computer games; discourse analysis – any others?

Contributors include: Simon Emmerson, Leigh Landy, Pierre Couprie, Mike Gatt, John Dack, Katharine Norman, Owen Green, Manuella Blackburn, Andrew Hugill, John Young, Pete Batchelor, John Richards, Bret Battey, Neal Spowage, Ben Ramsay, Panos Amelides, Katerina Tzedaki, Simon Atkinson – and more

In an afternoon session Pierre Couprie will give a demonstration of the first beta version of the project software ‘EAnalysis’ and Mike Gatt will report on the wiki OREMA project he has created.

While entry is free and open, spaces are limited and should be booked -please email to register (not the IOCT please). Your participation assumes you are happy to be recorded.
