April’s alumnus of the month is William Crosby. William graduated in BA Hons Music in 2015 and is currently a Research Assistant to our Head of Music and Performing Arts, Paul Jackson. Outside of this he was selected to be part of a year-long residency with the Brunel University-affiliated Institute of Composing, as part of their Academy Inégales programme in a 'trainee composer-in-residence' type role. He is also a freelance composer, performer, writer, and musicologist, and have research areas in musical semiotics, music and ecology/social politics, and music and architecture. William also teaches music privately, works for Cambridge University Press part-time, is a DJ, and play keyboards/synths/guitar in a Psychedelic/Glam/Pop band, called Lupo. In his own words “I do not sleep much, and drink a lot of coffee. “I suppose I look back now fairly romantically at my time at University, although at the time I was so immersed in my work that I probably did not take enough time to just stop and look around.” William says of his fondest memories at ARU, “Writing a piece for, and working with, the Anglia Chamber Choir was very special (and I owe a huge debt to Dr Paul Rhys for his support during that project), and I will never forget the all-night essay writing sessions in the library with my friend, Will, and the 7am bleary-eyed breakfasts afterwards.” Read the full interview at:
