We are very pleased to announce that David Holland and Louise Rossiter were selected to represent BEAN/UK at the latest CIME annual general meeting. The meeting, hosted in Krakow by Marek Chołoniewski, featured concerts and talks from members around the world, and was an excellent opportunity to show some of the most exciting works produced in the UK over the past 12 months. Louise Rossiter’s piece – Homo Machina – was subsequently published on the CIME DVD, showcasing works selected by member organisations.
Here is a nice photo of Louise Rossiter performing during the event:
Over the weekend, almost one hundred people registered to attend our EMAS 40th anniversary celebrations, which featured music from many of the UK’s finest composers and discussions from many well known figures in the field. A few initial photographs are included below, but a full set shall follow in due course:
Ambrose Seddon’s piece, Traces of Play, has been published on DVD by the International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (CIME). Seddon’s piece represented the British ElectroAcoustic Network at the recent CIME AGM, and has subsequently featured on their annual DVD of collected works.
Following our recent ‘call for works’, we are delighted to announce that Manuella Blackburn’s ‘Snap Happy’ was performed in Belgium, at the FeBeME-BeFEM, 12th – 14th Oct. Manuella’s piece was the British ElectroAcoustic Network selection for the concerts drawn from CIME member organisations, as can be seen: here.
We look forward to more activities with our CIME colleagues in the future.
The British ElectroAcoustic Network is extremely proud to announce a two-day event, to be hosted at the University of Greenwich. The event celebrates a very significant anniversary: 40 years since the founding of EMAS (The Electroacoustic Music Association of Great Britain). As part of the celebrations, we have announced a call for attendance, pieces, and papers: follow this link for more details!
Following the recent CIME call for works, at which Ambrose Seddon’s Traces of Play was put forward, BEAN have received news that the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba y el CCEC (Centro Cultural España Córdoba) are organizing the XXIIth International Conference on Electroacoustic Music – Virginie Viel’s La Dame Blanches has been proposed; this submission from DMU was rated second by the international jury, and is a suitable length for the call. More information to follow in due course…
Thank you ever so much to everyone who sent submissions to the recent call for works. Three international reviewers kindly gave up their time to consider submissions (Elizabeth Anderson, Felipe Otondo, and Laurie Radford) and we are delighted to announce that Ambrose Seddon’s ‘Traces of Play’ will represent the British ElectroAcoustic Network’s submission to the CIME AGM in Beijing 2018.
Each reviewer (quite independently) mentioned the extremely high level of work submitted, and all spoke of the difficulties in making a selection – it is therefore a pity that we are only able to present one piece this year.
Congratulations to Ambrose Seddon!
Andrew Lewis’ submission for the CIME AGM has been published on a collection of works from the event. CIME selected one work from each member, and Lewis’ Skyline was successful. For more information, see: here
James Andean’s Dechirure has been selected for the CIME call for works at the CIME Spectro Centre for New Music, during the 2nd International Tehran Contemporary Music Festival in Iran.
