North East New Music Ensemble
"Any Enemy is a group of enthusiastic and accomplished musicians who are enjoying the challenges; musically, technically and intellectually in exploring new music."
Pete Stollery studied composition with Jonty Harrison at the University of Birmingham and was one of the first members of BEAST in the early 1980s. Following a number of years as a school teacher in Kent, he moved to Aberdeen to work in teacher education at the former Northern College which later merged with the University of Aberdeen. From 2000, he was part of the team which re-introduced music programmes at the University of Aberdeen, including the introduction of doctoral programmes in Composition and the development of the electroacoustic music studios. He was Head of the Department of Music for many years and he now works there part-time as Professor of Composition and Electroacoustic Music.
