CeReNeM Newsletter April-June 2013

CeReNeM’s community of staff and postgraduate researchers continue to circulate internationally and the news below details many impressive new publications, awards, performances and premieres. Congratulations to Dr Rupert Till on the award of a very major grant from the EU Culture Programme; his work with the European Music Archaeology Project was part of a successful consortium bid from 8 partners for funding of €2 million over 5 years. Dr Aaron Einbond has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship which follows other recent successes with a project at IRCAM and news that he will be visiting Harvard University as Lecturer on Music in spring 2014.

Staff have been incredibly productive with publications of  journal articles, books and CDs in press and appearing with Ashgate, The New Soundtrack, Music & Letters, Twentieth Century Music, Empreintes DIGITALes and WERGO and we are proud to announce the release of the 6th CD of our own HCR label featuring the music of Aaron Cassidy, Bryn Harrison and Richard Glover performed by EXAUDI. CeReNeM has also partnered with University of Huddersfield press to launch the new online journal Divergence Press of which the next issue focussed on ‘Sound.Music.Image’ will be edited by Dr Julio D’Escriván.
