John Richards and Leigh Landy give joint keynotes in the Czech Republic

In October, MTI staff members, John Richards and Leigh Landy had exciting experiences in Central Europe. Landy gave a master class at HAMU, the Prague Academy of Performing Arts and then joined Richards in the Czech Republic’s second city, Brno where Richards was giving a dirty electronics workshop at Praha, Forum for Architecture and Media before they both presented keynotes at the International Musicological Conference at Masaryk University. Richards continued by giving lectures and workshops in Graz, Austria at the FH Joanneum, Department Media & Design; and at the Kunstuniversität Graz, Institut für Elektronische Musik und Akustik (IEM). During the visit it was agreed that DMU would commence Erasmus+ exchange agreements with both and organise Memoranda of Understanding to collaborate in the areas of research, cultural, staff and student exchange. After their return, Landy was offered a commission by the Czech National Radio for a new radiophonic work based on samples taken from Czech radio programmes to be broadcast in 2017. Richards and the Dirty Electronic Ensemble will return to HAMU in autumn next year.
