Friday 29th January 2010, 8pm.

A showcase of new groups that came together in 2009. Owen Green, Lauren Hayes, Jules Rawlinson and Sean Williams estabilshed a collective to perform semi composed / improvised works for electronic systems. Their ensemble is made from pairs of microphone-driven laptops and analogue synths.

Seattle-born trumpeter Matt Postle and Polish musican Radek Rudniki got together in York last year and will give a performance that in their words "shows interaction between trumpet and live electronics and illustrates how limited material can evolve and entertain".

Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB
Tuesday 17th November 2009, 8pm.

Transcending genres, composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti has developed a musical style drawing on Downtown New York experimentalism, contemporary classical music, jazz, electronica, and world music, particularly from Africa.

He will perform a selection of his compositions for electronics which reveal an inspiring new take on the dialogue between African and Western music achieved through ingenious use of sampling and music technology.

Lukas will also lead a three day workshop at Inspace with a second concert by students on the MScs in Digital Composition and Performance and Sound Design course. They will perform on the 20th November at 9pm.
