Postgraduate student Robert Ratcliffe: work receives worldwide exposure
His series of electronic miniatures entitled ‘Phoenix’ were also selected for performance at the Australasian Computer Music Conference (ACMC) in Canberra, Australia: http://conference.acma.asn.au/ACMC_10.html These were programmed during the main concert schedule, and also included in the ‘iPerformance’ concert , in which selected works were performed using adapted ‘iPhone’ technology to control the spatialisation of projected sound within the concert venue.
Robert’s electronic work ‘Phoenix 5’ was recently selected and performed as part of the 60x60 ‘Order of Magnitude Mix’ at Congress 2010 in Canada, which is regarded as the largest event of its kind in North America.
Two of Robert’s electronic pieces were also included in specially designed listening structures (sound stations) at Sonic Vigil V in Cork, Ireland. Created by students of the Cork Centre for Architectural Education, these sound stations were located within St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, and contained a selection of music sourced from an international call for works.
During the last 6 months Robert’s music has been performed in a total of 12 different countries.
