Prof. Michael Clarke wins AHRC research award; launch of two DVDs

Prof. Michael Clarke has been awarded a large AHRC research grant (£312,000 over 3 years). This is a joint project with Prof. Peter Manning of Durham University entitled ‘The impact of technology on the creative processes of composing electroacoustic music.’

Prof. Clarke will launch the DVD publications (performance and software): Quartet Choreography and Evolution and Collaboration: the composition, rehearsal and performance of Finnissy’s Second String Quartet at Senate House, London on March 7. This work results from a research collaboration with Dr Amanda Bayley (Wolverhampton) investigating composition, rehearsal and performance questions arising from quartets by Stravinsky, Ligeti, Lutoslawski and Michael Finnissy. more information: DVD Launch Invitation
