MA Student wins International competition for sound art

A piece of music by Richard Garrett, a part-time MA student in Electroacoustic Composition at Bangor, has won an international competition for sound art miniatures relating to the subject of climate change.

Richard's composition, entitled “Many Drops”, has been selected by the Red Cross / Red Crescent Climate Centre and a prestigious international jury convened by the CEIArtE research centre (Argentina), in the sound art miniatures "art climate” 2012-2013 contest. The Climate Centre will be using and disseminating the piece in a number of actions that could range from participative workshops or educational videos to collaborative learning games to improve the understanding and prevention of disasters.

The contest was launched by CEIArtE aiming to collaborate with the Red Cross / Red Crescent Climate Centre in their efforts to reduce the impact of the consequences caused by rapid climate change and extreme weather events, through various humanitarian actions.
