Axel Berndt studied computer science and music at Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany where he also did his PhD on the musical scoring of interactive media. From 2012 he worked for three years at Technische Universitat Dresden at the Media Design Group and the Interactive Media Lab where his research combined both fields, humancomputer interaction and music. In 2015 Axel Berndt moved to the cemfi (Center of Music and Film Informatics) in Detmold, Germany. At this institution, which is run collaboratively by Detmold University of Music and Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences, Berndt and his colleagues work in the fields of digital music editions, new interfaces for musical expression, live electronics, modelling and computer generation of expressive music performances, and music information retrieval and its applications in music production. Lisa Colton is Reader in Musicology at the University of Huddersfield. Her monograph,Angel Song: Medieval English Music in History, was published by Routledge, and has been described as a masterful account of the medieval history of English music (Music and Letters, 2017). Lisas recent research has focused on analytical approaches to fourteenth-century English motets,on medievalism in the music of British composer Margaret Lucy Wilkins, and on gendered voices in early French song. With Dr. Catherine Haworth, Lisa co-edited the volume of essaysGender, Age and Musical Creativity(Routledge, 2015); a second volume of essays, entitledSources of Identity: Makers, Owners and Users of Music Sources Before 1600was co-edited with Dr. Tim Shephard (Brepols, 2017). Simon Cummingsis a composer, writer and researcher based in the Cotswolds, in south-west England. He composes instrumental and electronic music, both of which focus upon gradual processes of transformation. His acoustic work involves highly intricate algorithmic processes rooted in carefullydefined behaviours, the music emerging from stochastic relationships in which these behaviours are juxtaposed and intermingle. His electronic music explores the juxtaposition of noise and pitch, reappraising what defines each and their boundaries. Cummings studied composition, conducting and organ at the Birmingham Conservatoire, at graduation being awarded the Creative Studies composition prize. Aided by a substantial grant from The Countess of Munster Musical Trust, Cummings undertook the Sonology and Masters degree programmes at the Institute for Sonology at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, at the same time studying privately with Richard Barrett in Amsterdam. He has recently completed a Ph.D. in composition at the Royal 10.5920/beyondairports.fulltext Birmingham Conservatoire under the supervision of Richard Causton and Howard Skempton. The primary focus of his research is the exploration and development of new algorithmic and stochastic approaches to musical composition. When not composing, Cummings is an accomplished writer about new music; he is the author of contemporary/avant-garde music blog 5:4 and contributes to assorted print and web journals. Ambrose Field is a British composer. He is Professor and Head of Department of Music at the University of York. His music has been performed at venues such as the Vienna Konzerthaus, Chicago Early Music Festival, and Parco Dela Musica Rome. His album for ECM, Being Dufay, was a bestseller on Amazon and achieved five star reviews in BBC Music magazine and from Classic FM. Other highlights include a commission from the Polish National Chamber Choir for his workIn Memoriam for H.M. Gorecki. This piece, for 25 solo voices with a Polish text, received critical acclaim in the press for a distinctive, lush sound world. Field studied Music Education at the University of Cambridge and Composition at City University, London. Whilst at City, he took Jean-Jacques Nattiezs Ethnomusicology seminar which became an important motivation in his approach towards new music. His work has received a number of international awards, including three Prix Ars Electronica honorary mentions specifically for pieces making use of new technologies, a strand of work which resulted in a performance at the MUTEK festival in Canada with the support of Recombinant Media Labs, San Francisco. Field has served as a panellist on the British Composer Awards, on juries for contemporary music competitions internationally. At the University of York, Field has created a successful international culture through finding new links with education and industry, creating resources which have been invested in new jobs, rese Ulf A. S. Holbrook is a composer, sound artist and doctoral research fellow at the RITMO Center for Interdisciplinary Study on Rhythm, Time and Motion, Department of Musicology, at the University of Oslo. The focus of his research is on the perception of sound objects in spatial audio representation systems at the convergence of signal processing applications and sonic creation. His research proposes the soundfield as a link between a sound object and the spatialisation of sound masses which share the same multidimensional space. His work is performed and exhibited in galleries, as well as at festivals and conferences internationally. Justin Moreyhas a background in sound engineering and music production, having set up and run a recording studio in Shoreditch, London from 1995 2003.
