The call for participation in the symposium is now open. Details of the symposium are below. We want to explore all aspects of our current project including new tuning systems, post-acousmatic and post-digital tendencies in the symposium as well as opening up the theme of the symposium to other imaginative responses which we have not yet explored such as sonic art and sound installation. All creative and stimulating responses to the title of the symposium are welcome.
The Symposium will be hosted in the Creative Arts Building at the University of Huddersfield by the Centre for Research in New Music.
Concerts and installations will be supported by the HISS (Huddersfield Immersive Sound System)
The University of Huddersfield press will publish an e-book of the symposium in the Summer of 2014. Following the symposium we want to give contributors time to reflect and expand their presentations. Although the publication will be situated within an academic context we are interested in presenting artist statements, interviews and exploring all the media rich opportunities offered by the e-book medium.
