Edinburgh Napier Music Research Seminar Series

Start date and time

Thursday 19 October 2017


Room A17 Merchiston Campus.

On 19th October, Dr Bill Bruford (Earthworks, King Crimson, Yes) will be coming to Edinburgh Napier University to deliver a guest lecture as part of our Music Research Seminar Series. His lecture, Give the drummer some: Distributed creativity in popular music performance, focuses on the relationship between creativity and popular music instrumental performance. Other lectures on the night come from two staff from the Tomlin Centre for Music at Edinburgh Napier. Dr Katrina Burton will be presenting on her research and professional practice that explores the links between composition, architecture and site-specific performance. Dave Hook will be presenting on his recent PhD submission: An autoethnography of Scottish hip-hop: identity, locality, outsiderdom and social commentary.

This event is a research seminar and therefore we respectfully ask that questions are related to the content of the presentations only, not the wider careers of our presenters (unless relevant).

Tickets for this event are free, but limited to 125, so book now to avoid disappointment!
