A Multimedia Contemporary Music Platform


Living Scores Live

Live is the second part of Living Scores and assesses the on-stage performance of contemporary percussion music. This part of the project investigates how repertoire-study might also generate the necessary knowledge to create an extended performance of the contemporary repertoire, and to which extent this can reinforce the concert-experience. Based on the theoretical and practical learning trajectory described in Learn in combination with current insights of cognitive psychology in music, the research aims at detecting which elements of the artistic process in the composition are less perceptible in a pure auditive representation. These elements may be translated into non- auditive presentations (visual, spatial, sensitive, etc.) and added to the live performance, in such a way that the performer will direct these presentations similar to the way he is controlling the auditive presentation.
