Recherche : The Unit for Sound Practice Research (Londres)
N Rémy nous signale l’activité de ce groupe de recherche dans lequel J Drever est impliqué. Comme le signalait JP Thibaud lors de la dernière AG, les recherches autour du paysage sonore « soundscape » sont très présentes en Grande Bretagne.
Sound Practice Research (SPR) is a new research group that integrates and advances the innovative activities of EMS composers and researchers. It functions as a nexus for a diverse range of creative and theoretical research linked by a common commitment to rigorous, thoughtful and convincing practice. This is enabled by expertise at the forefront of music computing and audio technologies, field studies and reflection on pressing social, cultural, commercial and environmental issues; and inspired by investigation into and archiving of historical precedents.
