New article in Organised Sound

Lab members Aaron Moorehouse, Harry Matthews, and Oogoo Maia have a joint-authored article in Organised Sound published today. The article, titled ‘Post-sonic Perspectives on Socially Engaged Compositional Practices: Composing ‘after sound’ and beyond music’, addresses the precedence given to sound in musical analysis and argues that socially engaged composers might reconsider the importance they place on sonic output and instead pay greater attention to how we critically engage with the subjects that stimulate our musical practice. It emerges out of their recent and ongoing PhD research into socially engaged practice.

The article can be accessed at the Organised Sound site.
