Promoted in partnership with Plymouth University’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR).

Festival directors:

Simon Ible, Director of Music, Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University
Eduardo Reck Miranda, Professor of Computer Music, Plymouth University

The theme of the 2016 edition of the Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival is Frontiers: Expanding Musical Imagination.

It will showcase extraordinary new technologies and approaches to composition and performance that are pushing the boundaries of music and promoting widening participation in the art of creating music.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) at Plymouth University is developing extraordinary musical instruments controlled by brain signals, biological interactive computers and technology to enable audiences to actively influence musical compositions and performances.

With music representing the energy of dark matter and biological organisms, to audio-visual performances exploring the electrical activity of the nervous system and computer-generated narratives, this year’s festival will be a truly guided tour at the frontiers of musical imagination.

The festival welcomes back Plymouth University alumni David Everson and Lithuanian guest composer, Linas Baltas.
