Faculty of Music


In this celebration of electro-acoustic music, four concerts staged throughout the day will bring classical repertoire into dialogue with cutting-edge electronic compositions, inviting audiences to discover new musics, and new ways of listening. The event will also feature a sound-visual installation created through a collaboration between composition and visual art students from the Faculty of Music and the Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts (CSVPA). Highlights of the day include George Benjamin in conversation with Richard Causton and Marta Gentilucci, ahead of a performance of his music by Italian pianist Erik Bertch. We are also delighted to be welcoming the SOUND/IMAGE Research Centre from the University of Greenwich, as part of their Spring tour, Intersections for this event.

This free event is taking place as part of the Cambridge Festival; for full event details, please visit the festival website:
