We are leaders in practice-based research methodologies in composition and performance. The work of our award-winning composers embraces acoustic, electronic and computer composition, and engages with multi-disciplinary approaches to creativity. We work closely with internationally-recognised performers and we engage in collaborative compositional processes. Our researchers explore the integration of research and performance.
