“I love the contrasting settings for the two commissions… Hectic Streetscape vs Majestic Landscape. Truly inspiring… so I recommend you propose a nifty idea for each site and see which one wins ! … Go for it … Explore your ideas, as Deadlines Rule… Press Go go. We look forward to finding out your thoughts…”
Professor Janek Schaefer was the British Composer of the Year in Sonic Art in 2008. He is renowned for his concerts and installations that ‘explore the conceptual, emotional and spatial aspect that sounds can evoke in site specific situations’. Sound is space and that creates our sense of place.
He is the holder of two Guinness World Records, and has toured widely throughout Europe, USA, Japan, played at The Sydney Opera House, and released over 25 albums.
