The final BU Loudspeaker Orchestra concert of this academic year took place in the Student Hall, Talbot Campus on Wednesday 2nd May 2018. This concert featured a range of electroacoustic music including work from undergraduate students, postgraduate researchers and staff at BU. The concert was a great opportunity for students, researchers and staff to collaborate on and co-create a live music event, and to present their music in a professional context.
Students from the BSc Music and Sound Production Technology course (Creative Technology) contributed a range of high-quality compositions. Many of these pieces were composed from field recordings; some from Bournemouth and Poole, some from London, and others from locations as far afield as Pune, India. The students also rigged the loudspeaker system, and then took part in a diffusion workshop (co-delivered by Ambrose Seddon and Panos Amelides, Creative Technology), learning and rehearsing some fundamental concepts for live multi-channel sound spatialisation in preparation for the concert. The programme also featured music from FMC PGR composer Antonino Chiaramonte and BU lecturer and composer Ambrose Seddon.
The sun setting over the Talbot campus buildings made for a fitting backdrop to the concert. Thanks to all who attended!
