WIRED: New Sounds from the Sonic Art Research Unit
NMC have released a series of new works developed as part of the Sonic Art Research Unit (SARU) project WIRED including works by Paul Dibley, Paul Newland and Paul Whitty from Oxford Brookes and Composers from Goldsmiths College, Keele University, University of Sussex, and Trinity-Laban. The project was developed in collaboration with harpsichordist Jane Chapman and explores the unique cultural resonance of the timbre of the instrument from its Sixteenth-Century origins to its appropriation by avant-garde composers of the Twentieth Century and beyond. Many of the works developed for the project explore the relationship between the instrument and live electronics that create a transformed soundworld for the instrument.
