Monty Adkins: Swedish grant and recent activity

Prof. Monty Adkins together with Paulina Sundin has been successful in securing a grant from Kulturbryggan of 450,000 SEK (around £44,500) in Sweden. The project expands on the Sethares work which they are presenting at the ICMC this year – the result of a previous collaboration which includes Huddersfield graduate Adrian Gierakowski (who appears as a co-author on the paper as programmer). The new project will involve new pieces for electronics and percussion with Jonny Axelsson and a symposium on new tuning systems at Huddersfield.

Monty’s work, Four Shibusa, stemming from his collaboration with Pip Dickens as part of a Leverhulme grant last year is now playing daily as part of the exhibition ‘Screen’ presented at Rugby Art Gallery between June 30th and 4th August.

Monty also recently worked with Ensemble Apartment House on Saskia Moore’s Dead Symphony  preparing all of the live electronics. This work was recorded by Channel 4 and tours Australia between 5-10 August.
