Bernard Parmegiani La création du monde
Plus new compositions from staff and students of the Conservatoire
Bernard Parmegiani, who passed away last year, was one of the giants of electroacoustic music composition. His epic La création du monde composed between 1982 and 1984 was possibly one of his greatest compositional achievements, a symphony of ‘musique concréte’ that charts the creation of the world. The 72 minute masterpiece will be presented in its entirety alongside new compositions from staff and students of the Composition and Music Technology departments, all diffused via the Recital Hall’s 24 channel surround sound system.
If you are interested in hearing the latest music and seeing work that no one has seen before then our Frontiers series is for you. In recent years our composition and music technology departments have nurtured some of the hottest talent on the British and European music stage and this is where it all started. Featuring guest performers and composers, as well as our student performers and composers, this series explores the vast world of contemporary music both acoustically and electronically.
