Thomas Gorbach will present a talk and concert at De Montfort University, Leicester on 21 February.

Thomas Gorbach is the founder of Austria’s first concert series dedicated to acousmatic music. With this project—The Acousmatic Project—he researched intensively for 10 years in order to build a multichannel loudspeaker orchestra, now called The Vienna Acousmonium.

Two festivals are organized every year, presenting international artists working on computer-generated sounds and multichannel live diffusion. In Leicester Thomas Gorbach will talk about the development of his diffusion technique called Ephemer Dynamic-Motion Soundsculptures and will project his latest works in concert alongside pieces by his colleagues Caroline Profanter and Martina Claussen.

Prof. Gorbach’s visit to DMU is made possible with the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum.
