Dear Sound Designers,
It’s almost time to begin another year and I am very much looking forward to welcoming you back to Greenwich. Geoff and the technicians have been busy over the summer with upgrades to the studios and we look forward to receiving some new equipment over the next few weeks which will begin to find its way into your hands via the studios.
Academics have been working on research projects and preparing events and activities for the next year. On the 4th October Ian will host a launch event for his new record label project Sonus Localia, presenting surround sound recordings and compositions. I have been finalising plans for this year’s Loudspeaker Orchestra concert series, which will welcome many international guests to share their works and their ideas with you in public concerts across the whole year. And as ever, all of our research activities are feeding directly into our teaching as we bring the ideas and approaches that we have explored directly into modules and classes on the programme.
This coming year will be the first time that we have students across all three years and I am really looking forward to the benefits that this will bring in increased community. I hope that you’ll be keen to join in with the many events that we are organising, and that you’ll be inspired and empowered to arrange your own events and performances.
See you in Welcome Week, with our first concert taking place on Friday 21st September – Ben Ramsay: Loudspeaker Orchestra.
