Adam Stansbie becomes a director of the Composer’s Desktop Project
Adam Stansbie has become a director of the Composer’s Desktop Project (CDP). The CDP, which has been running for over 25-years, offers a wide range of sound transformation software (that aid both sound design and composition), and a mutually supportive community in which practising composers can help each other, both in the design and use of new software tools. The CDP’s seven-hundred individual and institutional members span the globe and are variously engaged in composition, software design, sound art, academia, and much more.
The recent appointment of directors follows a re-launch of the CDP as a social enterprise which, having a bias towards educational initiatives, responds to the promotion and development of more in-depth computer science in schools, colleges and universities. From this point onwards, the approach will be multi-disciplinary with the aim of reconnecting the Arts and the Sciences - something that is done every day in music technology.
Adam is currently using the CDP in both his teaching and compositional activities, and is looking forward to taking an active role in shaping its future.
