Professor Pete Stollery's work is shortlisted in three categories at the Scottish Awards for New Music 2021.
Pete Stollery's COVID-19 Sound Map has been shortlisted in the ISM Award for New Music in Covid Times category. The COVID-19 Sound Map is a crowd-sourced project where the public is invited to consider everyday aural environments which have changed as a result of restrictions put in place around the world during the various periods of lockdown following the COVID-19 outbreak. The main aim of the project is to capture the sounds of a particular period of time, to document these sounds and preserve them on a Google Earth Web-based sound map which will be available in perpetuity so that these sounds can be (re-)listened to at any point in the future as a sonic memory of this unique period in our history.
Professor Stollery is Chair of the sound festival whose 2020 programme has been shortlisted in the SMIA Award for Creative Programming.
His electroacoustic piece Stolen Voices is part of a project by Rebecca Collins and Johanna Linsley’s which has been shortlisted in the Award for Installation/Sound Art/Electroacoustic New Work category.
Winners will be announced during an online presentation by Tom Service on the New Music Scotland website on Wed 17th June 2021.
