Sonic Art compositions by students online
Hear Hear! is the UK's first listening project dedicated to classical music and runs all year online at www.hearhere.org.uk and on air at Classic FM.
First-year students Dwain Bedford, Raevennan Husbands, Matthew McCormick and Simon Trevaskis each composed a one-minute downloadable track after being taken on a tour of University College of London's Ear Institute.
Their pieces, Cochlea Wonders, I'm King of the Sky, A Waltz Around the Ear, and Bells, can be heard on the site's “Inspired by the Ear!“ link.
“Creating this project was a fantastic opportunity for me to finally release some of the unrealised ideas in the basement of my imagination,“ commented student Raevennan Husbands.
Hear Here! co-ordinator Tom Hutchinson, said: “This has been a rare, fascinating opportunity to marry the worlds of science and the arts and to create a dialogue between different disciplines at two of London's leading academic institutions.“
He added: “Since launching in January, more than 70,000 people have become involved in Hear Hear! and we are delighted that so many people are able to hear the startling and imaginative work of these young composers from Brunel University.“
