Subject: OPPORTUNITY: Funded Studentship in Electroacoustic Composition
From: Andrew Lewis (a.p.lewis@bangor.ac.uk)
Date: Fri Mar 05 1999 - 07:26:01 EST

Forgive the plug, but we are looking for an outstanding composer to take
up our PhD studentship in electroacoustic composition from September
1999. There are also funded places for music technology and other
funding that is open to any area (including electroacoustic
composition), so I am forwarding the entire notice below.

Please reply to Dr Harper in the first instance, as I am currently on
study leave, though all enquiries will subsequently be passed on to me.

The main criterion for eligibility is that you have composed a good
piece or two.

For info on the department check out http://www.bangor.ac.uk/music (Yes
I know there are some broken links, but life is short!)

(BTW You don't have to speak Welsh! - only about 10-15% of students do -
but you do have to speak fluent Electroacoustic.)

Finally, please pass on to interested people and relevant lists. Thanks!

The Music Department at Bangor, led by Professor Robert Pascall, offers a
wide range of opportunities for postgraduate study. The combination of a
traditional University setting, an innovative, forward-thinking
Department, and the inspiring beauty of Snowdonia and the Anglesey
coastline make it an ideal place to pursue postgraduate studies at every

Postgraduate Opportunities

The Music Department at Bangor has a strong and vigorous research culture,
based on a mix of individual and collaborative activities. It claims
international excellence in most of its sub-areas of activity, and
world-leadership in several. There are currently around 25 postgraduate
students reading for the degrees of MA, MMus, MPhil and PhD, all of whom
are supported by a specialist supervisor. There is a weekly term-time
postgraduate seminar involving students, staff and guest speakers, and all
postgraduates have access to departmental computing facilities and a
well-stocked departmental library (which houses the Archive of Traditional
Welsh Music and the Crossley-Holland collection of early European
instruments). Bangor is among the leading UK universities for music
technology teaching and research, and its four studios cater for a range
of activities, from electroacoustic composition to commercial music
production. The Electroacoustic Music Studios (directed by Dr Andrew
Lewis) have an international reputation as a centre for composition,
producing a number of award-winning works.

Postgraduate Degrees

In addition to the research degrees of PhD and MPhil, the Department
offers taught Master's Degrees and University Diplomas. These are designed
as coherent, self- contained courses of study, as well as serving as an
excellent grounding for research or further study. The modular structure
of our taught postgraduate degrees offers students the flexibility they
need to shape a course of study ideally suited to their needs, building on
their existing strengths and interests, but also exploring new areas and
developing a new focus.
