Sound Junction: 5th - 7th May 2017

Adam Stanović and Adrian Moore teach electroacoustic music composition at Sheffield University. Our PhD supervisors were Denis Smalley and Jonty Harrison. As with a vast majority of PhDs, the teaching and learning doesn't stop and the communication between student and teacher lasts long after graduation. This is most certainly the case here. It is an absolute honour to welcome two of the finest electroacoustic composers to Sheffield. We also look forward to welcoming a number of friends who have also been tutored by Jonty and Denis. Look out for an updated sound diffusion system offering even more channels of audio.

USSS and Sound Junction are delighted to host Leeds University Music Department as part of our collaborative 3*3 series

3x3 is a collaboration between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York (the White Rose group of universities), showcasing electroacoustic music research and practice at those three institutions. Over the course of 18 months, there have been three specially curated concert programmes, one each curated by Leeds, Sheffield and York. Each programme has been performed three times—once in Leeds, once in Sheffield, once in York—resulting in 9 concerts in total, hence 3x3. This concert, representing the third and final programme in the series, is curated by Leeds, and completes the cycle of 9 concerts.
