John Aulich is a new music composer, experimental performer, recording artist and student at the University of Huddersfield, who studied composition privately with Matthew Sergeant between 2009 and 2011. Since, he has had pieces workshopped by Philip Thomas (in 2012) and Carl Rosman (2013). He is also an active performer of other experimental work, and has been involved in collaborative projects with James Saunders, Jürg Frey and Tim Parkinson. John has performed experimental music at numerous events, including HCMF (in '11 and '12) and Music We'd Like to Hear (2011), as a member of Edges Ensemble. He performed alongside Edges and members of the Bozzini Quartet for a 2-hour rendition of James Tenney's Swell Piece.
In the summer of 2012, John released a small suite of acclaimed electro-acoustic works inspired by the war stories of his late grandfather. Alongside this, Aulich also joined Edges for the recording of works by Tylan Susam and Jürg Frey, released by Another Timbre as part of Wandelweisser und so Weiter, which listed number 19 in The Wire's Top 100 releases for 2012.
In November 2013, John released Ambito Novum, a short EP showcasing an experimental take on various commercial electronic genres, including techno and glitch music.
John's work occupies multiple strands of musical and conceptual thought; Materials are placed within temporal frameworks delineating often-inaudible spaces with particular attributes or functions, acting as filters or transformational triggers. Over-riding questions of memory, perception and time have pervaded his work, initially inspired by Morton Feldman's concept of 'Abrash' - more detailed explanations of his latest pieces can be found here.
