    Pete Stollery, born Halifax, 1960, studied electroacoustic composition with Jonty Harrison at Birmingham University, where he received his doctorate in 1996. He now composes almost exclusively in the electroacoustic medium, particularly acousmatic music where there exists an interplay between the original”meaning” of sounds and sounds existing purely as sound, divorced from their physical origins. Recent performances include Musica Nova, Prague (1994), International Computer Music Conference (1995, 1996, 1997), Spitalfields Festival, London (1995),Journees d’Informatique Musicale, Paris (1995), ARTWORKS, Texas (1995), Brazilian Computer Music Symposium (1995, 1996, 1997), Florida Festival of Electroacoustic Music (1995, 1996), Musica Verticale, Rome (1995), Sao Paulo Bienal Internacional de MOsica Eletroacustica (1996), the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA96)  and many others. A number of works are available on CD. Shortstuff (tape alone) was awarded Special Prize in the Musica Nova 1994 competition, and Onset/Offset (tape alone) was given an Honourable Mention at the Stockholm Electronic Arts Award, 1996.
