"It was a great honour for me to win the Northern Ireland Singer and Overall Vocal Champion awards at Ballymena Festival this year. There are always many very accomplished singers competing at Ballymena and although it is ultimately a competition, the atmosphere is always friendly and supportive. I owe many thanks to my teacher Jenny Bourke and my accompanist Emma Gibbins, whose guidance and support have played a significant role in my recent success."

Dr Gascia Ouzounian, Lecturer in the School of Creative Arts, will speak at Oxford University on 14 March in support of the publication of Music Sound and Space: Transformations of Private and Public Experience (Cambridge University Press, 2013). The collection is edited by Georgina Born, Professor of Music and Anthropology at the University of Oxford, and chair of the international research programme 'Music, Digitisation, Mediation: Towards Interdisciplinary Music Studies'.
Music, Sound and Space is described as 'the first collection to integrate research from musicology and sound studies on music and sound as they mediate everyday life'. Dr Ouzounian's chapter, 'Sound Installation Art: From Spatial Poetics to Politics, Aesthetics to Ethics', examines the emergence and development of sound installation art since the 1950s, specifically looking at how sonic art works have changed in relation to evolving concepts of space and spatiality.
