Sonology avails itself of the Conservatoire’s two excellent concert halls for its regular concert presentations, featuring works by students, faculty members, guest artists, alumni and classics from the electroacoustic music repertoire, as well as performances by the Sonology Electroacoustic Ensemble, an improvisation group that combines acoustic and electronic instruments with live sound processing.
Every year the students perform the results of the final exams at a small festival in June.
Sonology also organises special projects. One example was a three-day festival in the spring of 2012 in which almost all of the electroacoustic music of Xenakis was performed, interspersed with instrumental pieces and accompanied by lectures, workshops and master classes on Xenakis’s music. Another was the Composing Spaces: Spatial Music from Gabrieli to the 21st Century symposium and festival in April 2013, which featured the GRM Acousmonium, the Game of Life’s Wave Field Synthesis system and other sound spatialisation technologies.
