Doctoral student Louise Rossiter is currently in China as the Music Ambassador for the Scotland China Education Network (SCEN). In collaboration with SCEN and other partners, Louise, along with audiovisual artist Andrew Connor, will be undertaking a major new sound and image project exploring the links shared between Scotland and China through the use of sound and image. Building on SCENs mission to promote links between Scotland and China — particularly in Scottish schools — Louise will develop several new pieces of work — including a collaborative sound installation with Andrew. You can follow the day to day progress in their project site and blog.
Mediterranea 16 – the Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean – which is being held in Ancona, Italy, from 6th June to 7th July. The work carries the listener on a journey that recaptures the sounds of a failed attempt in 1968 to assassinate the Greek dictator of the time, Georgios Papadopoulos, and studies the political persona of the would-be assassin. More details are available at this DMU News story.
