The main focus of my work is the creation of digital instruments that allow electronic sounds to be created and controlled in subtle and spontaneous ways analogous to the control of acoustic instruments. Much of this work involves careful consideration of the mapping between human input parameters and sonic output parameters. More recently, I've begun to expanded into looking at mapping strategies for creating meaningful physical interactions with the instruments through the use of haptic interfaces. In performance, I'll generally use a USB joypad controlling a feedback loop in Max (The Feedback Joypad - see tommudd.co.uk/projects/joypad.htm) or, the logical opposite of this instrumental research, a hideously gargantuan patch that tries to do everything at once. I teach various electronic music modules at Goldsmiths College and run their newly formed Music Computing ensemble.

This year, LLEAPP will be culminating in two performances. The first will be in the UEA concert hall on Thursday the 5th of May, starting at 7.30pm, and the 2nd will be at Norwich Arts Centre in the cafe-bar as part of their Spectro electronic music night on Friday the 6th of May. Performances at the Arts Centre are due to start at around 8:00pm and both gigs are open to the public.
Adam Jansch is a sonic artist currently studying for his PhD in music composition at the University of Huddersfield. His current research explores strategies for freeing the record from its inherent fixity, the outcomes thus far involving a range of artistic presentations - experimental performance, conceptual software, automated live electronics with radio, hardware based pop, and media installations amongst them - with the creation of open outcome works for mobile media devices as a significant future focus.
Alongside his research activities he is a member of HELOpg, the postgraduate laptop ensemble based in Huddersfield, and he has spent many years creating electronic pop music and playing bass guitar.
