ICCaT Researcher: Daniel Fallon

Daniel Fallon, previously a commercial film and theatre composer, is now working towards a PhD in music composition at the University of Liverpool. His academic interest lies in the aesthetic relationship between ‘sound’ and ‘music’ in audiovisual settings. His work is an attempt to unify the two through instrumental and electroacoustic composition. Central to his compositional process are techniques such as electronically manipulating ‘found sounds’ in order to draw out their aesthetic potential and scoring for instruments in such a way that the sounds of different objects and musical instruments dance in and out of a broader soundscape, making and breaking links with their origins and blurring the distinctions between them.
