Inventor Composer Coaction (ICC) is a first-of-its-kind event, bringing composers from Edinburgh University together with creators of unique digital musical instruments to explore new sounds and new ways of controlling sound.
Over 30 expert designers from around the world have contributed a variety of instruments, interfaces and sound generators for the seven resident composers from the University of Edinburgh to work with. These range from 3D-printed spheres that respond to touch, to software modelled on neurons firing inside a human brain. The composers will create chamber works written specifically for their chosen instrument, to be performed by Red Note at a special edition of Noisy Nights at The Jam House, 5 Queen Street, Edinburgh at 8pm on Wednesday 9 May.
