On the 24th October MA student Sam Kendall and Lecturer in Music, Dr Diana Salazar, will attend the Cambridge University conference- ‘Building Interdisciplinary Bridges Across Cultures‘. Here, they will present research and run a workshop on the electronic ensemble within higher education, in collaboration with Dr Oded Ben-Tal, Senior Lecturer in Music at Kingston University. The presentation will address the benefits and challenges of this type of ensemble, the local and global institutional contexts, and the interdisciplinary implications, in relation to music pedagogy.
Congratulations to MA Music student Sam Kendall, who has been selected as a finalist in the Oxford/Sennheiser Electronic Music Prize (OSEMP). The structure and materials of Sam’s shortlisted electroacoustic work ‘One Fast Move or I’m Gone’ are strongly influenced by Jack Kerouac’s novel Big Sur. Sam will diffuse the work at the OSEMP finalists’ concert in the Jacqueline Du Pré Music Building, Oxford University on 8th November 2014.
