Contemporary Music Review: Virtual Scores and Real-Time Playing

cover.jpgContemporary Music Review :: Volume 29, Issue 1 :: Special Issue: Virtual Scores and Real-Time Playing :: Arthur Clay and Jason Freeman, editors ::

Abstract:
Over the last decade, a growing number of composers have begun to use what is known as real-time notation in their work, and many have developed systems to facilitate its use in all types of performative situations. Although a community of practice around real-time notation is slowly emerging, there are few readily available tools for its creation, and little has been previously published about the technical, musical and design issues associated with its use.

We consider real-time music notation to be any notation, either traditional or graphic, which is created or transformed during an actual musical performance. However, the term has not been standardized, and various articles in this issue refer to real-time music notation using other terms, such as dynamic music notation, live scoring, virtual scoring, and reactive notation.

Net_Music_Weekly: “Death and the Powers” by Tod Machover

death_and_powers.jpg[Photo credit: M.I.T. Media Laboratory] When I die, what remains? What will I leave behind? What can I control? What can I perpetuate?

These are the eternal human questions facing Simon Powers, the protagonist of visionary composer Tod Machover’s new opera Death and the Powers, a full-evening work which premiered September 24, 2010 at l’Opéra de Monte-Carlo. In the opera, Powers, a rich, powerful businessman and inventor, wishes to perpetuate his existence beyond the decay of his physical being.

Reaching the end of his life, Powers uses his vast resources to devise a way to ‘download’ himself into his environment. This transformation turns every object in his surroundings — his books, furniture and walls — into a collective, living version of himself, called The System. Continue reading
