Composing Space [Loudspeaker Orchestra Concert Series]
Transporting the audience to other worlds, this concert presents a constellation of compositions and audiovisual works that unite the forces of the Royal Observatory and the SOUND/IMAGE Research Group from the University of Greenwich.
Featuring a programme of works that explore spatial immersion in both sound and image within the Peter Harris Planetarium.
About SOUND/IMAGE Research Group and The Royal Observatory Partnership: Composers from the SOUND/IMAGE Research Group are currently collaborating with colleagues from the Royal Observatory to develop how spatial audio and sound-based composition may be used to underscore and communicate educational and scientific knowledge activities within live planetarium shows and educational events.
Our 2021/22 concert season celebrates the diverse work of composers and artists working with recorded sound. Featuring lesser heard works from Eastern Europe, audiovisual collaboration with a leading UK museum, novel spatial audio works composed for the IKO by a group of women composers, and a showcase of Black and South Asian artists as part of our AHRC funded ‘Exploring Cultural Diversity in Experimental Sound’ project.
Booking is essential through Eventbrite. There are a limited number of free tickets available to University of Greenwich students and staff.
