Feedback: Sonic Embodiment in An Invisible Topography
In the current circumstances we have taken the decision to cancel our public facing events which we were due to host in the coming weeks. This decision will come into effect from Monday 16 March and covers all events scheduled until 30 April 2020. Events planned after this date will be kept under review. Please keep checking for updates.
This free event is part of the Ecologies of PaR postgraduate-led research seminar series hosted by Performing Arts at Leeds Beckett University
This performing arts research seminar will present a system of microphone feedback with spatial interaction, and the ways it has been used in creative practice and artistic research across disciplines of performance and music. Involving both practical demonstration and theoretical exploration, the seminar will offer a presentation of the development of the system as a means of exploring the notion and embodied experience of threshold as well as a medium of sonifying movement.

His research focuses on the physical materiality of sound and performance, combining approaches from spectral music and experimental music with dynamical systems theory to explore autopoiesis and recursive feedback systems in constraint-based open form composition.
