EU "Composing with Sounds" Concert

PACE Building Studio 1
27/02/2013 (18:30-19:30)

Prof Leigh Landy (


The "Composing with Sounds" project is an initiative led by the Music, Technology and Innovation Research Centre at De Montfort University and supported by an EU Culture grant with five partners throughout Europe: INA/GRM (Paris, France), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany), NOTAM (Oslo, Norway) and associate partners Miso Music (Cascais, Portugal) and the Ionian University (Corfu, Greece). An innovative software tool Compose with Sounds has been developed and taken into schools, introducing the possibilities of making music with sounds to young people, especially at KS3 (11-14) across Europe. This concert is one of many to take place between January and April in the six participating countries. It involves primarily pairs of works often using the same sound materials, one made by a student and one by a professional composer. Tonight’s concert includes work from the countries of the four main partners.
