Bryn Harrison. Wednesday 17 October, 12-4pm (CM.107).

Composer Bryn Harrison will discuss aspects of time, memory and repetition in his recent compositional output, drawing in particular on how these ideas relate to the materiality of sound in his recent Piano Quintet (2017).  He will demonstrate his approach to cyclical pitch structures and illustrate how these have been applied to works of extended duration.

 

Bryn Harrison is a composer and Reader in Composition at the University of Huddersfield from where he obtained a doctorate in composition in 2007. He is a member of the University of Huddersfield’s CeReNeM (Centre for Research New Music). Harrison is active as a researcher having developed a close working relationship with ensembles such as Plus Minus, Asamisimasa, Elision, Exaudi, Apartment House and the Bozzini Quartet as well as with soloists such as Philip Thomas, Mark Knoop and Aisha Orazbayeva. In addition, his pieces have been performed by many other established ensembles such as Ensemble Recherche, Klangforum Wien, London Sinfonietta, London Symphony Orchestra, and Wet Ink with notable performances and radio broadcasts from international festivals across the world.

A new publication, joint authored with Jennie Gottschalk and Richard Glover entitled Being Time: Case Studies in Musical Temporality will be published by Bloomsbury later in 2017. Bryn Harrison is a recipient of the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers.
