Centre for Research in Creative and Performing Arts

Ed Hughes

I am a composer interested in ensemble performance in the digital age: I lead an interdisciplinary project on networking technologies and the experience of ensemble performance. I also work on music and silent film, for which I have produced many original scores for both early film and in collaboration with film makers and visual artists today.

I have worked with numerous regional and national organisations, including Glyndebourne Education, Photoworks, Imperial War Museum, Brighton Festival, East Sussex Music Service, AudioActive, Brighton and Hove Music Service, Our Future City, The New Music Players and Orchestra of Sound and Light. I am co-chair of the University of Sussex Centre for Research in Creative and Performing Arts.

I am excited about the Centre's potential to bring together people working across different Schools; to explore and articulate creative and performing arts' contribution to research, through advancing knowledge and understanding of innovation in art and artistic practices, and also in evaluating the vital role of art in enhancing well-being and in therapeutic and education settings.
