Installation work, 2nd September – 5th November 2017, open 10am-5pm daily
Wednesday 1st November the School of Media Art and Design will be hosting a visit from Professor Stephen Partridge, who was a member of Sub-panel 34 (Art and Design) in the last REF. Steve is currently Professor of Media Art and Associate Dean of Research (Art & Design) at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee: https://www.dundee.ac.uk/djcad/staff/stephenpartridge/
As part of his visit Steve will be holding an open meeting/Q&A, to which all colleagues in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities are warmly invited. The session should provide a good opportunity to discuss preparations for the next REF with someone who has first hand experience of the REF process, and who has experience of assessing practice-based research submissions. Thus I hope the event will be of particular interest to practice researchers in the Faculty.
The session will run 1.30-2.30pm Wednesday 1 November 2017 in room Pf06.

Professor Matt Wright of Music and Performing Arts will present the launch of his new album, ‘Speak Cities’.
At 8pm on Thursday 20th April Canterbury Christ Church University and Extra Normal Records present Philadelphia (US) saxophonist Keir Neuringer and Canterbury (UK) composer Matt Wright‘s Speak Cities CD launch at the university’s high-spec St. Gregory’s Centre for Music. They will be joined by the extraordinary pianist Simon Vincent. You can book tickets (£5, or free for staff and students of the School of Music and Performing Arts) here.
The concept behind Speak Cities stems from Wright’s 2011 Trance Map collaboration with saxophonist, Evan Parker. After Neuringer and Wright’s April 2013 recording session at Brooklyn’s Seizure’s Palace, Wright spent two years assembling the six tracks that make up Speak Cities. The album is more than a studio composition comprising samples of Neuringer’s alto and Wright’s turntables. What we hear is something akin to a Neuringer solo – the emotional intensity and performative acrobatics that marked his 2014 solo double LP Ceremonies Out of the Air – and a Wright composition, with its obsessive and unpredictable repetitions and elastic structures.
On the strength of an exquisite Morton Feldman recital at Canterbury’s Free Range in October 2015, pianist Simon Vincent joins the bill on 20th April to perform as part of his Stations of the Cross CD release tour.
