Peter's talk looks at the shifting sands of pitch, and how over the years accepted and agreed pitches have creeped upwards. He also takes a closer look at the problems of homogenous music.Born in Edinburgh in 1987, Peter Gregson is a cellist, composer and pioneer of contemporary music. He has performed widely in the UK and the US, at venues ranging from The Royal Albert Hall, London to The Ingleby Gallery in Edinburgh; from the Twitter Offices in San Francisco to Le Poisson Rouge, New York. Peter's innovative approach to integrating cutting edge technology and contemporary music has led to collaborations with Tod Machover, Microsoft Labs and many other developers, artists and composers, and invitations to speak and perform at technology and media conferences around the world. His work has been recognized with the 2008 Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Award for music and with membership to the Courvoisier Future 500. Peter is a Made-By ambassador and also the 2010/11 Creative in Residence at The Hospital Club, London, where he curates his year-long series, alt_classical. He is currently working on his second original album with a release planned for late 2011.
