PhD Presentations (part 2)
Isidora Edwards Zamora: 'Women and experimental sound practice: Shaping experiences through sound'
This practice-based research project is concerned with women’s practices in experimental music, particularly in the fields of free improvisation and electronic music in the 21st century. It explores my own creative practice in acoustic and electronic sound.
Laurence Saywood: 'Enduring Victorianism: Rethinking Rock, Working Class Culture and the Long 1960s'
This thesis explores the overlooked influence of Victorian and Edwardian culture upon British popular music of the 1960s. Utilising archival research, the work investigates a broad range of both local and mass-mediated popular music, analysing the continued presence of performance cultures, class mentalities and notions of Englishness all with origins in the nineteenth-century.
Konstantinos Damianakis: 'Qfwfq’s Shell: Towards More-than-Machine Listening in Sonic Arts'
Qfwfq is the ever-morphing character that threads through the stories of Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics collection. In the story, “The Spiral”, they describe their life as a mollusc in their intra-action between their and others’ sensoria and ‘images’. Responding to Italo Calvino’s “The Spiral”, this work experiments with a more-than-human approach to machine listening through electroacoustic music composition.
Camila Corvalan Ocampos: 'Practising Authority: Colonisation and Western European Art Music in Paraguay'
My research delves into case studies spanning from 17th-century Jesuit settlements to explore the consequences of European art music instruction and performance in Paraguayan territories. I am investigating how these musical practices served both as a tool for advancing colonialism and as a means of empowerment for the colonized.
Jeremiah Spillane: ' "I Surrender Dear": Exploring Influence and Genre Framing in Jazz Manouche'
This presentation considers mediation, encounter and the propagation of musical style within the familial network of the Belgian and Dutch Manouche community, which ultimately arrives here with the music in the hands of Tcha Limberger and Mozes Rosenberg.
