CeReNeM newsletter July-August 2013

We’re at the end of another academic year for CeReNeM. A lovely end-pin was the recent graduation of our PhD students: Nicolas Bougaieff, Raymond Evanoff, Tamara Friebel, Iain Harrison, Sten-Olof Hellstrom, Samantha Horseman, Sebastian Berweck and Jamie Fawcus. We’ll be welcoming a particularly large cohort including 12 international students next year and are pleased to announce that scholarships have been awarded to Beavan Flanagan (CeReNeM-hcmf// scholarship) and David Pocknee (AHRC scholarship).

Our current students are having many successes:

Ryoko Akama was featured in The Wire, Issue 353 in an article by Abi Bliss discussing her work and the influence of composers Alvin Lucier and Eliane Radigue, sustained tones and the slippages of language. Samples of her work can be heard via The Wire’s website.

Pia Palme recently returned from a very stimulating month-long artist’s residency in Tehran at the invitation of the Austrian Embassy and Austrian Culture Forum. More info on Pia’s website.

Congratulations to Pierre Alexandre Tremblay on the conferment of the title of Professorship. Prof. Tremblay is working on his CD recording project for release on Empreintes DIGITALes next season as well as curating a number of CeReNeM residencies at the University of Huddersfield’s studios that are taking place over summer.
