Pervasive Media Studio Lunchtime Talk: Slow movement and locative music composition

Where: The Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, BS1 5TX

When: 25 November 2011 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Geraint Ffrancon joined the Studio in July 2011 to work on his PRS-funded location-aware sound and music project Channel Weather Symmetry. He has a background in music production and is currently studying for an MA in Media at UWE Bristol. In this talk Geraint will introduce the project, talk candidly about learning to be ???an artist???, and consider the tension between creativity and technology. Throughout his work, Geraint focuses on slow movement, and he will be discussing how technology can be used to help us slow down and reflect. You can see examples of Geraint's own work and research into others??? work here. His ongoing musings on the Channel Weather Symmetry project can be found here. This is one of our first talks in the new Pervasive Media Studio space, within the Watershed building. Please enquire at the Watershed box office for directions. This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week. Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday. Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates.
