...and the beat goes on. As part of our current anthropogenic sound season we present an evening of new music, talk and installation by Marianne Greated, Peter Stollery, Iain McCurdy and Robert Dow.

Marianne Greated; panechoic
Peter Stollery; machine music - vox magna
Iain McCurdy; prism – interactive sound installation
Robert Dow; uncertain memory


Marianne Greated is a Glasgow-based artist who has exhibited extensively in the UK and internationally, most recently in Copenhagen, Minsk, London and Delhi. She is lecturer at Glasgow School of Art. Her most recent installations use both visual panoramas and soundscapes.

Pete Stollery is Professor of Composition and Electroacoustic Music at the University of Aberdeen. He composes music where there exists an interplay between the original "meaning" of sounds and sounds existing purely as sound, divorced from their physical origins; this is achieved through the juxtaposition of real (familiar) and unreal (unfamiliar) sounds to create surreal landscapes.

Iain McCurdy is a composer of electroacoustic and acousmatic music from Belfast. The current focus of his work is on sound installation, the creative use of electronic sensors and innovative human interface design.

Robert Dow is a composer based in Scotland whose work concerns the use of sound which is highly referential in nature. He has worked mostly in the domain of the acousmatic, where the source of the sound is hidden.
