I’m currently on a short trip to London and Birmingham in UK. Two days ago I visited Ximena Alarcón at CRISAP as a follow up to out session when she visited BEK in February. In the afternoon the two of us did a informal presentation to CRISAP staff.
Yesterday I visited the guys running Call & Response, an independent sonic arts collective that has been setting up a speaker rig for presenting multi-channel music and sound art. Alongside the semi-permanent MULTI rig at Lydgalleriet / Østre this is one of a very few such venues that I now of that exists outside of academia, so it was interesting to see the space, get to know more about their work, and discuss possibilities for exchange and collaborations.
Today I’ve been travelling on to Birmingham for BEAST FEAST, a Birmingham Electroacoustic Sound Theatre. I’ll be presenting the Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper plugins Saturday, and I look forward to the many concerts and presentations during the festival.
