LLEAPP 2013, UoE

LLEAPP (Laboratory for Laptop and Electronic Audio Performance Practice) came home in April 2013, with some changes to the format of the event, most notably the employment of a Musical Director (the excellent Jan Hendrickse), and the decision to stage two performance events, the first being an introductory showcase, and the second inspired by The Odyssey.

Supervised by Martin Parker and Simon Frith, the research “Electronic music instrument practice and the mechanisms of influence between technical design, performance practice and composition“, included detailed case studies of both King Tubby’s and Stockahusen’s music, methods and technologies alongside a portfolio of original practice that ranged from analogue tape music composition, through to a recording of a short work for wax cylinder.  Sean is now a Leverhulme scholar attached to the Reid School of Music here in Edinburgh.
