In Farnham and London, four recent pieces were performed by musicians drawn from the London experimental music scene as well as students and members of the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham.
Sonic meditation XIX (Pauline Oliveiros, 1971) Deep listening and tuning in to one self and one’s environment
Solo: a little story(2016-2020) Little acoustic stories developed through my listening to the world and collecting noises.
Breath (2019) The soft sound of breathing unfolds, spreads, travels and mixes with the wind.
Floating moment (2019) A moment in time is narrated through a precise written descripton of sonic and visual events, thus becoming a score that can be reproduced in musical form.
Approchoaches and Departure – Appearance and Disappearances (Pauline Oliveros 1994) The score provides each performer with a strategy for approaching or departing from a pitch of his or her own chosing.

The concert series, is a collaboration between bookRoom and the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham, curated by Emmanuelle Waeckerle and Harry Whalley, aroun their common research in extended, textual, visual, gestural and object scores and ways to integrate or experience technology in text/music/film/performances. The project is supported by UCA research fund.
