Public Research Seminar Double Bill: Paul Norman & Andy Ingamells
Public Research Seminar Series
Birmingham Conservatoire - Workshop 2

Dr Paul Norman (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire): Finding a Place for Bob and Cynthia
By appropriating the structure of one of his own short video works Bob and Cynthia, Paul Norman will highlight the potential of producing artistic works, and reflecting upon them, as a critical and robust method for artistic research.
This presentation will comprise spoken/written text, video and live performative actions though which Paul will embody the compositional approach as a ‘lecture performance’.
Dr Andy Ingamells (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire): Reading, character and playing
Don’t read this, it’s not for you. Do you want to risk being bored? Well, OK then. Compositional rules excite me because they generate actions in which sounds may occur. Your presence is required for music. If you’re not here then you’ve missed out, so I won’t describe what happens. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of other things to listen to, although it’s better to make a piece than to perform, to perform than to listen, to listen than to hear.
