BEAST FEaST showcases some of the most recent and cutting edge developments in electronic and electroacoustic music.

Electronic music can produce sounds suggestive of the most intimate intentions; the result of acts undertaken by the most miniscule of agents. At the same time it can evoke soundscapes which, whether subtle or grand, go far beyond the scope of an individual’s actions, up to and including the cosmic.

Join BEAST and featured composers Paula MatthusenPierre Alexandre Tremblay, and Sarah Farmer, for BEAST FEaST 2017. Explore an endless range of possibilities – from local, personal, and rhetorical, through the immersive and environmental, to the incomprehensibly vast. Featuring a keynote talk by leading electroacoustic composer Professor Simon Emmerson and performances by University Resident Ensemble (2016/17), the Pestova/Rees/ Roche Trio.
