Lefteris Papadimitriou laptop

Panorama is a series of electronic pieces dealing with issues such as improvisation and structure, physicality of sound material, parametric movement in different sound domains and creation of an orchestral electronic sound. The pieces are composed by a series of sound layers, the material of which ranges from sounds from outer space to old analog synth sounds. An 'orchestration' of the different sound layers creates a new compound layer which continually oscillates between the familiar and the alien.

Phipps Hall, 1.20pm

Yorkshire Late Starter Strings

Laurence Rose a theory of nothing (World Premiere)

a theory of nothing is built around relatively simple, repeated figures and the transitions between them. The ensemble effect is influenced by each player freely choosing parameters such as tempo or pitch from within a menu of choices. The texture builds and evolves gradually, unmetred at first, later with a clear metre and more chordal material. a theory of nothing was commissioned through Arts Council England's Grants for the Arts.

Apartment House

John Cage
But what about the noise of crumpling paper which he used to do in order to paint the series of "Papiers froisses" or tearing up paper to make "Papiers dechires?" Arp was stimulated by water (sea, lake, and flowing waters like rivers), forests

Apartment House performs But what about the noise..., a piece written by Cage in celebration of the work of the sculptor, painter, poet and abstract artist Jean Arp on the occasion of the centenary of his birth.
