Ambrose Seddon’s works are out there! They have been performed in concert in Bangor, Beijing, Birmingham, Brussels, Edinburgh, Leeds, Leicester, London, Manchester, Montpellier and Sheffield…

After completing a BMus in Music (1996) at Goldsmiths College, University of London (England, UK), Ambrose Seddon composed, produced, and performed electronic music, which was released through a number of independent record labels. During this period, sonic experimentations with field recording, hardware processing, and computer audio led him to discover the extensive possibilities of electroacoustic music. As a result, he pursued an MA in Electroacoustic Composition (2004) followed by a PhD in Music (electroacoustic composition, 2013) both at City, University of London, and both supervised by Denis Smalley.

Since 2002 he has focused primarily on acousmatic music composition, although he also creates interactive multichannel sound installations, collaborates on immersive audiovisual projects, and performs improvised live electronic music. And twice he has been composer in residence at Elektronmusikstudion (EMS, Sweden, 2015, ’16).

Ambrose Seddon’s music has been performed in concerts and festivals, and has been awarded prizes in several international competitions such as: Klang! (France, 2014, ’19), Destellos (Argentina, 2010, ’18), Métamorphoses (Belgium, 2012, ’18), ICMC (Denmark, 2007), Visiones Sonoras (Mexico, 2006), and Bourges (France, 2005, ’06).

He is currently a lecturer in the Creative Technology Department of Bournemouth University (Bournemouth, England, UK).
