Shawn Greenlee (Associate Professor, Experimental and Foundation Studies) will present his spatial audio work, Quarries HSL, configured for 82-channels at the University of Birmingham’s annual festival of electronic music at the Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre (BEAST) known as BEAST Fest. The festival runs 27th April – 29th April 2017.
“Over the decades since its launch BEAST has become established as one of the leading systems for the presentation of electronic music in the world, and as an ongoing catalyst for creation and innovation in the field. BEAST is particularly recognised for its key role in championing the development of acousmatic music – music composed especially for loudspeakers – and live ‘diffusion’, a practice aimed at creating immersive sonic experiences in concert. While continuing to advance creative work in these areas, BEAST is also a platform for a wide variety of sound-based art in various styles and genres, including live electronic music, pieces combining instruments and electronic sound, soundscape composition/phonology, and sound installations.”
