AEMS, the Acadia Electroacoustic Music Studio


AEMS, the Acadia Electroacoustic Music Studio is almost complete! It's taken a few years but now the studio is nearly ready for operation. AEMS is the first fully functioning multi-channel spatialized studio of its kind in Nova Scotia. The purpose of AEMS is the exploration of spatialized sound, acousmatic composition and interactive electroacoustic music. AEMS is located in the Festival Theatre on the campus of Acadia University in Wolfville, NS.

Bathymetric Terrains Update 1


I'm currently working on a new composition for flute, guitar and electronics called Bathymetric Terrains. Bathymetry is the charting of underwater terrains. I can see the Minas Basin from my living room and watch the tides come and go twice a day. It's fascinating to see the topography revealed. This work is for the Charke ~ Cormier Duo and will be finished some time in the spring of 2019. The number of movements is TBD. There will be a soundscape that includes multiple flute and guitar parts, ocean sounds, and other sounds. Some of the work will include live computer processing. I will post updates from time-to-time. Thanks to Arts Nova Scotia for providing funding to support the creation of this work.
