Creative Tourist

Sophie Cooper / Nicole Raymond at Phipps Hall, Huddersfield 18 November 2019 Entrance is free

This concert premieres two brand new works by Sophie Cooper and Nicole Raymond, two of five artists chosen to participate in the Huddersfield Professional Development Programme for Female Composers of Electronic Music. Through this project, artists 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 their music.

Sophie Cooper is a West Yorkshire-based musician working in a myriad of experimental fields. A composer and improviser for trombone and guitar, her solo material has traversed noise, psychedelia and traditional songwriting; as a collaborative artist, she has played with sound artist Delphine Dora and Vibracathedral Orchestra’s Julian Bradley. For the HISS, she has written Intact, a piece which realises the trombone as a source of infinite texture.
