Contemporary Music Practice
The group is based at Brunel University, which has a rare concentration of contemporary music specialists on its academic staff. While many of the group's activities focus on the work of its members, its seminars also provide opportunities to encounter the work of eminent composers, performers and thinkers from the UK and around the world.
The group also offers seminars at the University of London in collaboration with the Institute of Musical Research. Recent guests include Peter Ablinger, Paul Griffiths, Clarence Barlow, Tom Johnson, Hans W Koch, François-Bernard Mâche, and Phill Niblock. The CCMP's current Artists-in-Association are Apartment House, Distractfold Ensemble and Piano Circus.
