*New Aesthetics in Computer Music 2008 Residency Programme*

New Aesthetics in Computer Music are pleased to announce their international
artist residency programme for 2008 with five prolific figures from today's
computer music scene - Russell Haswell, Olaf Bender, Terre Thaemlitz,
Christophe Charles and Roc Jimenez de Cisneros. These artists are engaged in
divergent practice and have innovative approaches to the development of
labels, methods of music dissemination and publishing, critical writing and
curatorial practice.

New Aesthetics in Computer Music is an AHRC funded research project taking
place in the Music Research Centre at University of York (UK). The project,
initiated by Dr Tony Myatt in October 2007, conducts research into
experimental electronic musics with an emphasis on non-academic practices
and artists. The project is a response to a gap between academic and
professional computer music; it takes the stance that many of the most
radical and revolutionary developments in computer music have taken place
outside academia.

A total of nine artists will be invited to work with the research team over
the course of the project. Each artist will be resident in the Music
Research Centre for a period of two weeks during which they will develop new
creative work and interact with the project's researchers.

The University of York Music Research Centre supports creative,
technological and critical research in contemporary computer music. The
centre features world leading acoustic spaces and audio resources for
surround sound research, computer music and sound art.

Arts and Humanities Research Council - Each year the AHRC provides
approximately £90 million from the Government to support research and
postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English
literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes
approximately 700 research awards and around 1,500 postgraduate awards.
Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only
applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities
researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the
higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this
investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits
but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
