Martyn Ware - (re)Actor3 Keynote
Martyn founded Illustrious Co. Ltd. with Vince Clarke in 2001 to exploit the creative and commercial possibilities of their unique ‘Heightened Reality’ three-dimensional sound technology and bespoke musical composition in collaboration with fine artists, the performing arts and corporate clients around the world who include The Science Museum, London, The Royal Ballet, and collaborations with the artists Cathy De Monchaux, Tim Head, Gary Stevens, David Bickerstaff and Philip Tsiaras (at the 2003 Venice Biennale).
Recently Martyn was part of the collective representing Britain at the Venice Architectural Biennale in 2006. Echo City, developed under the leadership of Jeremy Till, Director of Architecture at the University of Sheffield, is an "urban register" describing Sheffield at a variety of scales from 1:1 to 1:10 million and Martyn’s soundscape projected Sheffield's relationship with the world at large. He also lectures extensively on music production, technology, creativity and soundscape composition at universities and colleges across the UK and Europe.
