We all know by now some of Federico Reuben‘s activities in and out of Brunel. We just wanted to signal that he has won one of the most prestigous prizes of the University in being awared one of only five VC prizes for best PhD. Mr Rueben presented a portfolio of algorithmically-generated musical compositions with a most impressively well argued aesthetic manifesto. Bravo and best wishes. We are sure there will be more good news to follow.
