Professor Nikos Stavropoulos: Aural micro-space: Beyond the final frontier
In his Inaugural Professorial Lecture, Professor Nikos Stavropoulos will consider theoretical frameworks and experiential realities in the composition of immersive acousmatic works.

Nikos will discuss his practice-based research over the last 7 years exploring the notion of aural-microspace in compositional practice.

A selection of recent works will be performed using a periphonic speaker array and Higher Order Ambisonic technologies.

Professor Nikos Stavropoulos is a composer of predominantly acousmatic and mixed music. He read music at the University of Wales, where he studied composition with Professor Andrew Lewis and completed a doctorate at the University of Sheffield under the supervision of Professor Adrian Moore.

His music is performed and broadcast regularly around the world and has been awarded internationally on several occasions. His practice is concerned with notions of tangibility and immersivity in acousmatic experiences and the articulation of acoustic space, in the pursuit of probable aural impossibilities.

In 2006 he joined the Music, Sound & Performance Group at Leeds Beckett University. He is a founding member of the Echochroma New Music Research Group, a member of the British ElectroAcoustic Network (BEAN) and the Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers Association (HELMCA).

This lecture is part of Leeds Beckett University's Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. This event is happening as part of the LEEDS 2023 Season One: Awakening showcase.
