For this performance, we welcome composer-in-residence Annie Mahtani to perform a world premiere of her latest ambisonic composition (a 3D sound piece) over our HEARO system, which is a collection of 31 loudspeakers delivering immersive sonic experiences. Her output encompasses electronic music composition from acousmatic music to free improvisation. As a collaborator, Annie has worked extensively with dance, theatre and on site-specific installations. Annie is a Lecturer in Music at The University of Birmingham. She is co-director of SOUNDkitchen, a Birmingham based collective of curators, producers and performers of live electronic music and sound art.
Annie will be joined by University of Hull student composers who will be performing their new electroacoustic works.
HEARO (Hull ElectroAcoustic Resonance Orchestra) is a collective of artists at the University of Hull, dedicated to public presentation and engagement with sonic arts and electronic music, ranging from concert and gig performances to gallery installations, public interventions, talks, and workshops.
