These many new works will be allowed to resonate alongside rather older, more historic experimental musics, causing an interesting counterpoint and context for musical innovation.
Typical of the Salford Sonic Fusion Festival, the geographic reach of the work and artists it features is world-wide, from Australia to USA, from Korea to Mexico, from Canada to France, Italy, Greece, Germany and so on.
The symposium theme for the festival is ‘Zoomusicology, bioacoustics and the human muse.’ The symposium, which is open to interested members of the public, will feature many notable international speakers. In short, this will look at the magical world of sounds and music from the animal and insect worlds and how these have influenced or inspired human music. Whether through the imitation of bird-song in some piano works or the behaviours of insect swarms to influence the programming of electronic sound-art.
