Once again I am enrolled as a full time student at the University of Huddersfield, and my (MPhil/)PhD research has begun.
Professor JMC and I met yesterday for a first tutorial and I have a plan for the next three years. Lots of reading, writing, programming, and composing have been diagrammatically spreadsheeted in a Gantty style, so now all I have to do is get on with it.
Since submitting the original proposal for this project six months ago, I have discovered some issues that may stifle certain avenues of investigation. I’ll explain more after getting proper advice on the matter, but there shouldn’t be too much of a set back.
On a slightly less tentative front, I have been asked to collaborate on a project with the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (HCMF). I will be working on an interactive archive installation for one of their educational projects. This will be the focus of my programming for the next few months.
Lastly, seen as this is a first blog entry, I ought to say Hello World! and bid Welcome you readers. Posting will not be daily to this blog, perhaps weekly or monthly, and I expect that it will chronicle various distractions in addition to the research and development… your comments are welcome along the way too.
