Keynote performer – Pete Furniss

The keynote event will be a performance discussion session, featuring Pete Furniss on clarinet+computer. Pete’s expert live performance will provide tangible examples for debate: the exact nature of the music can be interrogated and its potential changeability questioned.

Pete Furniss plays regularly with many of the UK’s leading ensembles and orchestras, performing extensively in the UK and Europe, giving solo concerts at venues such as the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, London’s Purcell Room, as well as in New York, Seoul and Edinburgh.

He has given electro-instrumental performances, with Richard Dudas, Martin Parker, Alex Harker and others, at the Forum Neues Musiktheater, Stuttgart, ICMC Copenhagen, Edinburgh University (in association with IRCAM, Paris) and at the Seoul International Computer Music Festival, South Korea. Recent works have included Boulez’s Dialogue de l’ombre double, Alex Harker’s Fluence and Martin Parker’s GruntCount.
