Sound and Music Higher Education Programme

I’m really happy to have been selected as one of twelve composers taking part in the Sound and Music Higher Education Programme 2014.

I will be working with Oren Marshall to compose a piece for tuba and electronics. The piece will be performed at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2014 and will be recorded by NMC Recordings.

Sound Thought 2014

I’m very pleased that my composition Late Lines will be played as a multi-channel sound installation (Late Lines Remix) at Glasgow University’s annual festival of Music, Sound, Performance and Research, Sound Thought, which takes place 10-12th January 2014. Late Lines Remix is currently scheduled to be installed in the cinema from 1100-1400 on Saturday 11th Jan.

Solo cello and electronics: Late Lines

Composition for solo cello and four channel electronics performed by Severine Ballon at City University, June 24th 2013. Composed by Georgia Rodgers in collaboration with Severine Ballon, 2013.

The work uses extended cello performance and electronic techniques to explore the spatial and sonic experience of the cello. Amplification, sampling, delays and spectral filtering serve to build up detailed layers of spatialised, magnified sound. The grain of the instrument is investigated, crossing the boundary between noise and pitch. The textures constantly evolve in response to minute adjustments in the speed, pressure and position of the cellist’s bowing patterns.

The title is taken from a series of paintings by Robert Irwin.

Late Lines was turned into an installation for Glasgow Sound Thought 2014.
