A Score Space is a spatial approach to musical composition in an
electronically extended environment. This collaborative,
cross-disciplinary workshop will address the following issues:
How can the practice of musical composition integrate the
techniques and ideas of sound, image and space?
How can the musical score be transformed for the practice of
electronic instrumental music and media art?
How can interactions between sound, electronics, the body and space
expand the musical instrument?
The focus of this workshop is to create scores, which map the spatial
interactions between performer/instrumentalist, audience and sound.
The scores may be graphic, moving, invisible or inscribed in the
space by the movements and interactions of the people. Various
spatial sensing techniques can be explored to incorporate motion,
location and environmental data into the interaction with sound. The
performance of SPIN will act as an example of a score space.
The Score Spaces Workshop aims to create a platform for
composers/artists to practically experiment with ideas of score and
instrument in a technologically extended environment. Building on
Yolande Harris' research Score Spaces, the workshop will provide an
opportunity for artistic development through practice and group
discussion. The results of the participants experiments and
compositions will be publicly presented in the form of a performance
or installation on the final evening at the contemporary music and
sound art venue Intro | In Situ.
The workshop is suitable for composers, sound artists and musicians
who have worked with other media. It will also be relevant to artists
with backgrounds in visual art (media art, video), architecture,
interaction design, dance or film, who also work with sound. Each
participant will need to have sufficient technical and conceptual
proficiency to contribute to the group.
The workshop is intensive and residential, for between 6 and 10
participants. The participants are expected to work with their own
computer where possible and bring any specialist interfaces or
instruments. Basic equipment including sensors and interfaces will be
provided. Each participant is required to contribute 300 euros to
cover accommodation and meals.
