Spotlight: Mirage: A Spanish Summer

Today’s spotlight is a composition, Mirage: A Spanish Summer by Liz Lane. In Liz’s own words:

Mirage is a reflection on a Spanish summer at various times of day. The music is an image of events which, whilst not perhaps significant in themselves, together shape a lifestyle which necessarily revolves around the supremely hot weather.

You can view the sheet music for the piece on the Research Repository, which also includes a link to a performance of the piece in 2015.

Liz Lane has over twenty compositions on the Research Repository, most of which include the full sheet music.

 

 

Spotlight: Hedgewitch

The Research Repository has a huge variety of research outputs in all different forms. Journal articles and conference papers are obvious candidates for the repository, but it also holds videos, artefacts, compositions, patents, books and book chapters, and many other item types.

Spotlight is a series where we highlight some of the different research outputs that have been uploaded to the Research Repository to show that it isn’t just for journal articles and to comply with the REF.

The spotlight today is Hedgewitch a short film by Liz Banks. Hedgewitch was screened at several international film festivals and was uploaded to the Research Repository in 2011. It features friendship, magic and self-acceptance all in just over eight minutes. The record also includes a video of production stills. Watch the film on the Research Repository and then try searching yourself for other creative works.
