CIRMMT is the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology. It is a multi-disciplinary research group centred at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University.  It unites researchers and their students from three Quebec institutions – McGill University (Faculties of Music, Science, Engineering, Education and Medicine), l’Université de Montréal (Faculté de musique, Faculté des arts & des sciences), and l’Université de Sherbrooke (Faculté de génie).  The CIRMMT community also includes administrative and technical staff, research associates, visiting scholars, musicians, and industrial associates.  CIRMMT occupies a unique position on the international stage having developed intense research partnerships with other academic and research institutions, as well as diverse industry partners throughout the world.

Starting the Research Project at Cambridge

         

The Electronic Music of Roberto Gerhard

This is the project that the University of Huddersfield will run from Jan 2012 – Dec 2012. The AHRC are funding £146,000 for to produce research outputs that will include a book, a cd of works, journal articles, conference papers and a complete catalogue of the tapes and electronic works. The first 3 months will be in Cambridge working on the collection and the remaining nine months will be working on the catalogue and other research outputs. One of these outputs is on 24-26 of April, with the 2nd International Conference Roberto Gerhard, host in Barcelona and Valls, and organised by the University of Huddersfield.

This research project will examine the electronic music of Roberto Gerhard. Gerhard received a number of prestigious commissions, including the BBC, Koussevitsky Foundation and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. By undertaking the first academic study of Gerhard’s electronic music produced between 1954-66 we will compare Gerhard’s achievements as a composer of both acoustic and electronic music to those of his European counterparts; position his work relative to the other UK-based pioneers of electronic music (Oram, Cary and Derbyshire); and provide an important insight into the unique circumstances associated with the development of electronic music in the UK during the early 1950s, not least the lack of establishment support.

The research team is:

Dr. Monty Adkins: Composer and Professor of Experimental Electronic Music and Head of Research for the Music Department
Dr. Carlos Duque: Composer and Research Fellow
Sr. Gregorio García Karman: Research Associate
