This SPIIC Lecture Concert is the second in a series of weekly workshop discussions to accompany our project Dreaming Fields of Action, which SPIIC initiated in cooperation with the Université Côte d'Azur in Nice and the Creative Space for Technical Innovations (CSTI) of HAW Hamburg. In the context of Dreaming Fields of Action, we will explore the possibilities of improvisation in virtual space in the upcoming months. In addition to the practical artistic exploration that we continuously pursue with ensembles in Hamburg and Nice, we have invited a number of excellent guests who will discuss with us various theoretical topics of improvisation, virtuality and technology.

Our second guest is William Brunson, who's achievements both as an artist and academic scholar are quite extraordinary. Under the motto 'making sense' Mr. Brunson is going to discuss and share with us his current research and work on narrative in electroacoustic music. We are very much looking forward to this evening!

William BRUNSON (1953) is best known for his electroacoustic music, which has been widely performed. Awards include the Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Awards, Luigi Russolo Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, The emsPrize and Alpha Award (VICC). His music has been released on several cds including the portrait Movies for Your Ears. Brunson has lived in Sweden since 1980. He acted as artistic director at Fylkingen (1982-1987) and has worked for the Swedish Radio, Swedish Television and Royal Swedish Opera, among others. He holds degrees from Dartmouth College (English, BA) and Columbia University (Music composition, MA) and is currently researching narrative in electroacoustic music at De Montfort University. Brunson was recently deeply engaged in the design and implementation of KMH’s new building. This project interlinks six control rooms, three recording studios and five performance spaces — one of which is dedicated to immersive sound and images and features a system of up to 45.4 loudspeakers in a periphonic configuration — via an advanced digital infrastructure. Brunson recently retired as professor of electroacoustic music and studio director at The Royal College of Music in Stockholm (KMH).
