The twentieth century saw a series of musical upheavals, from modernism and atonality to chance composition, electronic music and rock’n'roll. The status of ‘composer’ has been continuously challenged, discarded and re-imagined. Our panelists work has addressed the ‘composer problem’ in the 21st century, employing strategies as varied as graphic/generative scores, the revolutionary Audio Mulch software, and the use of pre-existing formats (such as DNA mapping) as compositional material.
Callum G’Froerer and Cathexis will perform scores composed by Cat Hope.
More Talk Less Action is a series of panel discussion-based events. Each night revolves around a theme and features two short performances. People interested in music are invited to take part.
