Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Much of what modern electronic musicians compose and improvise is difficult, if not impossible, to score using traditional musical notation. This workshop explores alternatives to traditional scoring techniques including graphic notation, audiovisual scores, and iconographic systems. These systems provide directions for improvising musicians while encouraging them to draw from their own musical backgrounds and timbral palettes. An audiovisual score might be constructed by sounds and images from the environment, or prepared materials projected and amplified into the performance space. An iconographic system includes recognizable icons arranged in a timeline for a musician or ensemble to interpret.

Pen, paper, and a tablet or laptop computer are suggested for notes and examples. Some knowledge of music theory is helpful but is not required.

** If you successfully register for this workshop, please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Those not in attendance 5-minutes before the session begins, may forfeit their spot to the next person on the waitlist.
