Bodies of Industry – electroacoustic music by Louise Rossiter
You are warmly invited to our next BU Sonic Arts concert. Come and experience the magic of immersive, spatial sonic art!
We are delighted to welcome composer and researcher Dr Louise Rossiter, who will present a selection of her award-winning electroacoustic music on the theme of ‘Bodies of Industry’. This is a rare opportunity to hear Louise’s work projected (= spatialised live) on our multichannel loudspeaker system, here in Bournemouth University’s Sound Stage in the Poole Gateway Building.
As part of the programme, students from the BA Music & Sound Production programme will present their own works alongside Louise’s.
Louise Rossiter (1986), is an Electroacoustic composer based in Leicester, UK. In 2021, she was the first woman to win the internationally renowned electronic music competition Prix Russolo, for her work ‘Synapse’. She was inspired by, among other things, her Grandad by playing her Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf” and Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals,” generating a lifelong interest in narrative compositions.
