be achieved. I was interested in the possibilities for transformation and the creation of intriguing and captivating material from a relatively small pool of sounds. The work necessarily relies upon repetition; the initial sonic motif is reiterated throughout the work, albeit subjected to transformations and differing representation. There is much use of pitched material, and these pitches (derived from the original samples) are manipulated and transformed in myriad ways. Martin Curtis-Powell is a composer specialising in electroacoustic music. He completed his undergraduate degree at The University of Sheffield and won the Philip John Lord Composition Prize. Prior to this, he worked as a composer, performer and sound engineer for over a decade in the field of rock/heavy metal music and performed worldwide during that time, releasing several records. He has just concluded his studies for a PhD in electroacoustic composition under the supervision of Dr Adrian Moore at The University of Sheffield.

Jünk Teller The members of Edinburgh based acoustic and electronic network improvisation group, Jünk Teller, propose an improvised performance that will explore the group’s recent and ongoing research into performer relationship within improvised music. This unique collaboration provides a setting that encourages the ongoing experimental process of instrument design and performer interaction. The collaboration in its current state utilizes computer network technology to transfer performance data (current and average frequency, amplitude and articulation) in real-time between the performers individual interactive electronic systems. An environment is therefore established in which the systems listen and react in a similar fashion to improvising human performers and become influential to future musical decisions. In interactive electronic music it is often the case that the physical actions of a human performer can appear detached from their resulting sound. Jünk Teller are concerned with the physicality within electronic 31
