Presented by the Intermedial Composition Network, Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture.

We'll find out when we get there is a new, 60-minute, site-responsive work for live musicians and electronics, flexibly designed to be performed in and toured to mid-sized public art spaces around the UK. Exploring the relationship of sound and aural architecture, the work is situated at the intersection of performance and installation.

In this seminar, composer/creative director Drew Crawford will discuss how the work is being developed in partnership with Plus Minus Ensemble and John Hansard Gallery, and how he is experimenting with collaborative theatre-, choreography- and studio-based creative practices in his compositional process.
