In Search of the Miraculous

In Search of the Miraculous (2011) is the fifth release from the University of Huddersfield’s HCR label and features electroacoustic works by Paulina Sundin, Sten-Olof Hellström, Rose Dodd, Barbara Ellison, Nicolas Bernier, Jamie Fawcus, Dominic Thibault and Mark Bokowiec.

This disc emerges from a group of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers working in electroacoustic media and computer music at the University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Research in New Music. The works display a great diversity in artistic practice and technical means, yet there are also common threads running through the collection: relations between the natural world and human ritual, the idea of sonic phenomena experienced as an embodied or spatialised presence, worlds of play and memory ‘in search of the miraculous’.
