Making it Up Square.jpg

 Drawing on academic research from across the Social Sciences at Loughborough, Making it up: this moment of June, investigates forms and relations of listening that (re)produce and are (re)produced by personal and public places, thinking through non-musical, musical and technological listening. Rebecca has brought together an ensemble of Loughborough musicians to explore ways to trace boundaries of music, place and registers of listening. The public are invited to a recording session, when a recording of a new performance score will be captured. The audio recorded during that session will then play again in online and public spaces on our Loughborough Campus and in the town over the summer period. The score developed for the project will be published in autumn 2018.

Rebecca Lee is a musician, artist and educator based at Primary Studios in Nottingham. She produces audio works, performance, site-specific installations, film scores, broadcasts and publications. Location is an important consideration to Rebecca’s work, as are the relationships between experiential, cognitive and cultural understandings of sound and musical materials. Musically, she is interested in improvisation, working with field recordings, site-specific composition/performance, collaboration and communication between “professional” and “amateur” music makings. Recent works include the site-specific ‘The Heavy Note’ at Brewhouse Yard Museum in Nottingham; an infinitely changing generative score to soundtrack Yelena Popova’s moving image work ‘This Certifies That’, and If the bell rings we will hear it, a touring musical research project in collaboration with Samuel Rodgers. As Bredbeddle she has recently released her album Stackes through Fractal Meat records. Rebecca is an Associate Artist and Fermynwoods Contemporary Art.
