The Atrium (G10) Alison House, Reid School of Music

Lisa Busby is a Scottish composer, vocalist, and improviser based in London. Situated across experimental music, performance art, and pop song, her practice often utilises the found and the prosaic, and manifests in various entangled modes – long-duration and site-specific work, video, non-standard scoring/notation, “anti-production” techniques for electronic music, and live improvisation for sound/body. Instrumentally she works with voice, turntables, hardware and software electronics, and electric guitar.

Counting House @Pear Tree

LLC Blethers is a conference with a twist. The event consists of three panels of three PechaKucha presentations each. The presenters will address all aspects of academic and non-academic life in the School of Literature, Languages and Cultures community. The innovative and fast-paced PechaKucha format requires presenters to use only 20 slides and only 20 seconds per slide, thus creating a lively and fun setting for an informal get together. Presentations can address research, the stresses of academic life, projects at LLC, or any other topic related to their experience in University.
