Balancing purpose and play in rule-based compositions’ was given at the Performing Indeterminacy conference at University of Leeds on 30 June, followed by a performance of his piece sometimes we do what you say, but occasionally we don’t. Matthew presented his paper ‘Queered orientation(s): Re-imagining the taxonomy and interrelation of musical materials in The Velvet Rage (2017)’ at the MuSA 2017 conference in Karlsruhe. Louis chaired a session on Ephemeral Scores and the Work-Concept at the RMA Music and Philosophy Study Group conference at King’s College London on 13 July, which included a paper on his Laughter Studies series.
