Georgia Rodgers at University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield 18 November 2019 Entrance is free

Georgia Rodgers is one of five artists chosen to participate in the Huddersfield Professional Development Programme for Female Composers of Electronic Music. Through this project, she had the unparalleled opportunity to work with the Huddersfield Immersive Sound System (HISS), using its monolithic network of 48 channels and 66 speakers to expand the scope of her music.

Rodgers music focuses on what she calls ’locatedness’. Describing her piece Near and Far, the London composer used the word to capture our geographical and environmental relationship with music, how we are able – and sometimes unable – to put a pin on what we’re hearing. An artist who focuses her energies on perspective and acoustic design, Rodgers’ music takes space seriously, considering the conditions of an environment to be as significant a detail as the timbre of an instrument. Presented as a day-long loop, her work for the HISS is a patient and thoughtful appraisal of these ideas.
