Professor Bad Trip


Following the success and critical acclaim of the 10x10 programme in Autumn 2019, Uproar returns with a new programme dedicated to new electroacoustic composition. This is a re-scheduled event (due to take place in March 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic).

Three new homegrown commissions sit alongside three celebrated international works by pioneering electroacoustic composers. All specialise in the use of electronics to sculpt and manipulate the sound of traditional instruments to create new sonic experiences. Performed by Uproar’s new music specialist musicians this is an evening of virtuosic work for anyone interested in the new frontiers of classical music and electronic sound.

This new programme commissions three new 8-minute works for large ensemble and live electronics from 3 welsh composers Sarah Lianne Lewis, Bethan Morgan Williams and Andrew Lewis. These works sit alongside those of three international electroacoustic pioneers emerging from the ‘Spectral Movement’ in Paris, Tristan Murail, Fausto Romitelli and Kaija Saariaho.

A pre-show talk will take place in Studio 1 between 18:30 - 19:00. The talk will be hosted by Steph Power who will be talking to two of the composers.

19:30 - Friday, 20 May Tickets
