Bupp!! is a new work commissioned by New Media Scotland. Created by Sound Designer and Composer Jules Rawlinson around themes of emergence, repetition and difference, Bupp!! scatters cropped and chopped vocal fragments onto a grid-based playspace.
Through generative and interventionist gesture, in an act of co-creativity the listener becomes conductor, composer and performer of the piece.
Jules Rawlinson graduated from Edinburgh University’s MSc Sound Design programme in 2006 and is now working towards a PhD in Composition at the University. He works with custom software, modular electronics and sampled performances. His research interests include open form, adaptable interfaces (e.g Monome 40h), and electroacoustic improvisation. His most recent composition, ‘Sample & Hold’, is a 20 minute work for one or two laptops, graphics tablets & controllers that employs many different approaches to sampling.
