Michael Finnissy: Dialogues

Published: 31 October 2016

The work of Michael Finnissy, University of Southampton Professor of Music, is to be the focus of a symposium at the University of Huddersfield this November.

Thursday 17 November 2016

Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield

This one-day event brings together invited academics from across the UK to discuss the contribution to British musical life made by Michael Finnissy, in the year of his seventieth birthday.

Throughout the day attendees will be able to view the exhibition ‘Michael Finnissy at the British Music Information Centre’ (curated by Roddy Hawkins), experience the interactive multimedia tool ‘Evolution and Collaboration’ (designed by Amanda Bayley and Michael Clarke, with the Kreutzer Quartet), and interact with a selection of Finnissy sounds via the big curvy screen at the award-winning Heritage Quay, which hosts the British Music Collection. The event includes a lunchtime recital and closing panel discussion with the composer.

The symposium takes place in Huddersfield the day before this year’s Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, on Thursday 17 November. It is hosted by the University of Huddersfield’s archive Heritage Quay, home to the British Music Collection. The event is organised by the University of Huddersfield and the University of Manchester
