Open Scores Lab programme for 2017-18

We are pleased to announce the visitors for the 2017-18 labs following on from our first series in 2016-17. Each lab is on the first Wednesday of the month in term time from 12-4pm, and features a visiting speaker alongside presentations by staff and PhD students from Bath Spa. The lab is a mix of theory and practice, and we often try out work in progress.

The first lab is on Wednesday 4 October, and features Andrew Hugill talking about silence and audio games as scores, and our visitor is recent PhD graduate Luke Nickel who will be presenting some recent work, including a new piece that will be performed live on BBC Radio 3 on 14 October as part of their Why Music? The Key to Memory event at the Wellcome Collection in London.
