We would like to invite you to the latest research seminar of the Creative Technology Research Centre.
Title: Encounters in space and place: immersive environment construction for the concert hall and beyond
Speaker: Peter Batchelor
Composer and Sound Artist
De Montfort University
Date: Wednesday 14 February 2018
Room: F309, Fusion Building
Peter Batchelor will be speaking about the construction and fabrication of environments in acousmatic music and its transferability to all sort of sound design. Looking at the exploration of all of these concepts within the concert hall and outside (i.e. installations—gallery and public) over multiple channels. He’ll also talk about trompe l’oreille as well (illusory soundscapes).
Peter Batchelor is a composer and sound artist living in Birmingham, UK. He has studied with Jonty Harrison and Andrew Lewis and is currently a lecturer at De Montfort University, Leicester.
His music draws strongly on the aesthetics and compositional concerns of the acousmatic tradition, but uses this heritage as a springboard to investigate a variety of other genres and presentation formats for electroacoustic media including radiophonic documentary, live-electronics and improvisation, multimedia and large-scale multi-channel installation work. More recently his interest has shifted towards site-specific public (sound) art, including the fabrication of aural landscapes and sonic illusion (trompe l’oreille).
His work has received recognition from such sources as the Concours de musique electroacoustique de Bourges and the International ElectroAcoustic Music Contest of São Paulo and has been presented internationally.
We hope to see you there.
