SOAS Music Department is No. 1 in the UK for research

Our wonderful music department is OFFICIALLY the No. 1  Music Department in the UK for the quality of research published by our members of staff. Our research is described as  “world leading” and "internationally excellent". Check out the link here, if you don't believe me:

My first conference paper! Intimidating...

Yes, I'm going to present some research findings at the ACE Conference 2014 (great name for a conference, I think). It should be a lot of fun, if my brain doesn't explode. Here's a bit more about the event itself:

VisionMix Short Cuts

If you happen to find yourself in Central London on the eve of May 13th, then come and check this out: it's the screening of a fascinating and vital film anthology, featuring important works by some of India's leading visual artists - and I did the sound design (including composition of original music for the opening and closing credits).

A hook-up in Jodhpur

 

So I'm in Jodhpur, working on my PhD, and who should I bump into but the young Bruce Gil - award-winning composer and music producer from Italy. We couldn't resist to make a recording, and we even put together our own makeshift studio in the hotel room: fun times!

Check out Bruce's stuff here:

"Experiments In Sound" release date 

Delays, delays... I had hoped to have this unusually beautiful thing out this autumn; but, as it turns out, I have to go back to the Rajasthani desert in October, and I will be there until springtime next year (with a few weeks off for good behaviour at Christmas time). Due to these ongoing music PhD commitments, the "Experiments In Sound" album release date will now be scheduled for autumn 2014. But fear not! The sonic material for the album is approaching completion, and includes my first symphony and a serial composition based entirely on the sounds of howling wolves. Be warned.
