Dr John Dack presents at the 'Kompositionen für hörbaren Raum' conference

Dr John Dack, Senior Lecturer in Music and Technology, was invited to present a paper at the conference: ‘Kompositionen für hörbaren Raum – die frühe elektronische Musik und ihre Kontexte’ at the Technische Universität, Berlin, July 9-11. His talk was entitled ‘François Bayle’s valeur obscure’. The paper concentrated on Bayle’s unique approach to electroacoustic composition. François Bayle kindly gave advice and guidance in the writing of the paper. Although he is firmly position within the aesthetic of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (he was the director of the organization for many years) Bayle had developed his own theoretical framework for composing with recorded sounds. The conference audience consisted of composers and musicologists who have a particular interest in spatial distribution and how spatial thinking is manifested in acousmatic music.

The paper will appear as a chapter in a forthcoming book related to the conference. Publication is expected in 2015. As this was an invited paper costs were provided by the Technische Universität.
