The School of Performing Arts welcomes a new member of staff, Richard Glover, a new reader in music
Richard Glover, a composer and writer on new music, joined the School of Performing Arts this month teaching in composition, musicology and performance.
His music has been performed by the Bozzini Quartet, musikFabrik, BCMG, BBC Concert Orchestra, Dedalus Ensemble, Philip Thomas and others, and a portrait CD was released in 2013 on the UK label Another Timbre to widespread acclaim. His writing on music covers experimental approaches to music making, including publications on the music of Phill Niblock, minimalism and technology, and immersive listening environments.
He is currently working on a portrait CD with the Bozzini Quartet and new compositions as part of a long-term collaboration with artist Louisa Fairclough. He is also co-authoring a book on the temporal experience in experimental music for Bloomsbury, due for publication in 2016, and working on articles on the music of composer Eliane Radigue and the role of process in composition.
