On Wednesday November 29th, MTI Prof. John Young will give a presentation at the Leicester Media School research seminar, titled "Sounding Memory, Sounding Imagination":
"Sound recording gives composers scope to engage creatively with the entirety of the sonic world—from sounds already around us in nature and culture to new forms of artistic experience created through digital synthesis, transformation and spatialisation. Whilst artistically liberating this also raises deep problems of how to navigate meaningfully through such virtual creative freedom. John will look at the content of this technologically-enabled artistic landscape from both media arts and musical perspectives. Examples from his practice-based work with oral history recordings will be used to illustrative possible solutions to some of the aesthetic issues raised."
Wednesday November 29th, 4pm, Gatehouse Building GH3.79
