DMSA Alumni, Students and Staff showcased @ IWD2019

As part of the International Women’s Day 2019 campaign to #BalanceforBetter, Sound and Music showcase the profiles of 31 composers and their unique contributions to composition in the UK. Alumni Akiko Haruna and Guoda Dirzyte, current student Jade Gunner and DMSA Course Leader Dr Maria Papadomanolaki are profiled in the showcase that is part of the online archive of British Music Collection.

British Music Collection provides unparalleled access to the modern history of composition in the UK. Established in 1967 as a means for contemporary composers to deposit scores and recordings for performers to access, it now consists of almost 70,000 works and recordings from over 3000 20th and 21st century composers and sound artists.

The value in the collection is undeniable – providing access to over 50 years of contemporary composition – but it’s not without fault. The underrepresentation of female composers, or those who identify as female, across the original collection is stark, and a reminder of the progress that has been made, and must continue to happen, in and across new music.

Much of the British Music Collection now exists here online, and this provides a great opportunity to readdress this imbalance and the original aim of the collection: providing access to the work of contemporary composers.

Our current student Olivia Louvel will be leading the next masterclass on a very inspiring range of topics: sound women and battles.

About the session

Document and Construct: sound, women and battles.
I will explore the relationship between documentation and creation throughout my most recent works, Data Regina, inspired by the reign and writings of Mary Queen of Scots as well as the audiovisual piece, Afraid of Women, produced to bring awareness to Rojava, the autonomous region in Northern Syria.

Finally I will share my experience as a member of female:pressure, the international network of female, transgender and non-binary artists in the fields of electronic music and digital arts founded by Electric Indigo.
The session will be punctuated by sound intermission and live performance.

DMSA Feature: PJ Davy

PJ Davy’s ‘Heads In The Cloud 2.0’ opens tomorrow at The Basement in Brighton as part of the Exploring Boundaries exhibition, Brighton Digital Festival. We briefly talk to PJ about his background, his creative vision and projects his is currently working on.

DMSA: Where do we find you now?

PD: I recently moved to London where I’ll be starting a new role as a Production Technician Intern at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. I’ll be helping the production team provide sound and lighting for contemporary dance, orchestras, and operas. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into London, for a while. I miss the sea and fresh air, already, though.

DMSA: Three important words that represent you as a creative person

PD: Always be yourself.

DMSA: When did you start working with sound and music?

PD: I started working with sound and music, electronically, when I was 14 years old. A friend introduced me to Fasttracker 2, and I was hooked. It’s interface looked like the Matrix. You had to program in volume, panning, and other effects by sequencing numbers that scrolled up or down the screen. It forced some pretty nifty creativity within its limitations, but that’s always where the good stuff comes from.

DMSA: In what ways has the DMSA course supported or helped you to develop into who you are today creatively and professionally?

PD: DMSA opened up my eyes and ears to areas of sound and music I’d not yet explored. It broadened my horizons and opportunities to work with amazing artists I never thought I’d be working with, in worlds I’d never associated myself with. It challenged me to focus my time and effort into projects in a professional way, but always with experimentalism at its heart, and never in a direction that felt forced upon me. I feel like the course has developed my creativity to push my own work within the global art and music community.

DMSA: Other plans for the future? projects, events, visions?

PD: I’ll be with Trinity Laban until next September, so I’m currently looking for a masters program to continue studying in 2019. I have some projects I’m currently working on that I’m really proud of, something very personal, and some others I look forward to being able to share, nearer completion. On the 4/5/6th of October, I’ll be exhibiting my multichannel sound and light installation, Heads in The Cloud 2.0, for Exploring Boundaries at The Basement, in Brighton, at part of Brighton Digital Festival 2018. This second iteration of my installation will focus more on the traces of memories left behind once time has passed since originally posted. It’s easy to forget what of ourselves we’ve submitted onto the world wide web, but we leave behind our ghosts in the machine, possibly forever.

I aim to remain focused, be productive, and keep learning.

Heads In The Cloud 2.0 opens tomorrow and will be running till Saturday 6th.

Digital Gestures | Human Contact Exhibition at ONCA Gallery

24-25 September 2018 | 24th Sept: Launch 6-8pm / 25th Sept: 12-5pm
ONCA
4 St George’s Pl,
Brighton
BN1 4GB
[map]
[Facebook Event]

We are happy to be supporting the upcoming exhibition titled ‘Digital Gestures | Human Contact‘ at ONCA gallery for Brighton Digital Festival.

The exhibition features works developed by 2nd year students in our course. The works have been developed in partnership with Fab Lab (University of Brighton) and Mi.Mu.

The two installations on display in Digital Gestures, Human Contact offer an inspiring, surprising and mesmering journey through digital motion sensor technologies, music and visuals where the audiences become interchangeably performers and observers.

54 Bones is a gesturally based performance art installation for an audience of one. It uses gestural glove controllers to trigger and manipulate sounds, using a series of gestures and movements inspired by British Sign Language. The work aims to extend the ephemeral moment at which sound, language and meaning collide, resulting in a truly intimate, human experience for each person who takes part, leaving them free to interpret what the interaction means to them.

Cogflux.01 is an interactive audio-visual installation by PRTCL Collective aiming to break the barrier between audience and performer through the use of motion sensor technology, generative audio and visuals. The piece aims to conceptually adopt the headspace one obtains whilst traveling long distances, which was inspired by Kaihōgyō, a walking meditation process used by Buddhist monks for more than 1000 years.

Artists exhibiting:
54 Bones – Duncan Cabral, Olivia Louvel, Jamie Moore, Dominic Rae
Cogflux.01 – PRTCL Collective are Jedd Winterburn, Tarek El Goraicy, Matt Were, Louis Sterling, Jack Cleary, Visuals: Joe Wheater
