Oxford University’s EMPRES Collective and Modern Art Oxford present another evening exploring the boundaries between music, sound and technology in the shape of the Art of Noises series. Taking over the galleries, the evening holds a series of innovative performances and installations.
The evening will see multiple works from the Oxford music and Ruskin school of art graduate and undergraduate community, including DPhil composer Jonathan Packham’s work on the score as space, to be explored by performers. Jon has been commissioned to produce a site specific piece by MAO using VR, that musical performers will respond to in a live performance.
There will be ‘live research’ from musicologist Kathryn King, whose immersive recording of Magdalen Chapel’s Choral Evensong has to be heard to be believed – those who do listen may be asked a few questions about the experience!
The University of Oxford’s Electronic Music Practice RESearch group (EMPRES) aims to promote and advance research and public dissemination in Electronic Music Practice. It does so by working with musicians, composers, producers, researchers and academics from a wide range of disciplines interested in electronic music, as well as other members of the music industry.
Modern Art Oxford is a charity. Please consider making a donation when booking this free event.
