Since the launch of my recent exhibition in June I have had to focus on my music tuition. The Academy at which I previously taught was closed, making me redundant from the end of July, 2017.
Rather than being an obstacle, I saw this as a chance to renew myself and open my own practice. Getting the business underway and functioning has proven more difficult than I originally imagined, requiring a lot of time and energy.
I have continued to compose, with two pieces now taking shape: an audiovisual sonic art (video) piece which builds from where the MA left off; and a composition for voice/guitar/piano which engages my current thoughts on musical composition. I hope I will feel comfortable uploading at least one of these when they are completed.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post for the University of Huddersfield’s press blog in which he discusses the experience of publishing with their open access journal, Fields.
I also included some details about how this experience, and that of speaking at a conference in support of the published work, had an impacted on his current research at the University as a postgraduate researcher.
I am pleased to now be able to offer ONLINE MUSIC LESSONS!
I am looking for some helpful and willing learners to take part in a few experiments with the technology.
What you will need:
• an instrument - limited to guitar for now, I’m afraid… • a PC (Windows, or Mac OS) with a webcam, current tablet or mobile phone with webcam • a microphone (many laptops now have these built in) • a Skype account
