ICCaT Researcher: Liam Carey

Liam Carey is a Postgraduate student working towards a PhD in Composition. Particularly interested in auditory perception and how it shapes the listeners experience of a piece of music he is currently researching to what extent the concepts of consonance and dissonance can be applied to elements of music other than harmony. As a composer his interest auditory perception has led him to be influenced by composers who all deal in some way with auditory perception, such as the minimalist La Monte Young and Steve Reich, the experimentalist Alvin Lucier and James Tenney, and the spectralists Tristan Murail and Georg Friedrich Haas, as well as other perceptual based art works such as the Op Art movement. http://www.liamcarey.co.uk
