Sounding ceramic sculptures
Iris Garrelfs will be talking about working with the sound of objects, in particular ceramic sculptures, giving examples from her collaborative installation 'Littoral Assembly" at Brighton Digital Festival 2016 and a recent residency at Onassis Centre in Athens. She will explore objects as instruments and conveyors of meaning within a site-specific context.
Iris Garrelfs is an artist working on the cusp of music, art and sociology. Her practice includes fixed media, installation, improvised performance and has been included in major institutions worldwide, for example Tate Britain, National Gallery, Visiones Sonores Mexico, MC Gallery New York. Several of her works have just been nominated for the British Composer of the Year Award (Sonic Art).
Elsewhere she is the commissioning editor of the online journal Reflections on Process in Sound and the co-curator and director of Sprawl, a London based experimental music organisation.
The Music Research Series is designed to help postgraduate students advance their research and careers. The events stimulate exchange, hones skills, facilitates the creation of professional networks and helps to consolidate the department’s postgraduate community, all over a glass of wine! Attendance is strongly recommended for all postgraduate students (MA, MMus and PGR) in Music but of course undergraduates, music researchers, and visitors from across the college and the community are also most welcome to these public lectures.
