Sean Williams

Dr Sean Williams is a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at the  Reid School of Music, University of Edinburgh with a keen interest in electronic music and its performance practice. In order to understand  the nature of creative music practice Sean designs and builds  electronic instruments, sometimes closely based on historical ones used by Karlheinz Stockhausen or King Tubby, for example, and sometimes to his own specifications.
Sean plays live electronics with Edinburgh based ensembles “Grey Area”  and “Monosynth Orchestra” and writes about distributed creative practice and the roles of technicians and assistants at the West  Deutsche Rundfunk Studio for Electronic Music, Cologne, where some of the most incredible electronic music was produced in the 1950s and ’60s.
