This a call for collaboration in an AHRC funded project researching the musical score when augmented with digital technologies. The aim of the project is to expand the practical and theoretical research into the integration of digital technologies into instruction sets for performers. To this end the focus is on the process as much as the outcome and we welcome participation from composers who are actively working with digital technologies and those who are interested in exploring what such technologies could bring to their work.
The benefits of participation are:
1- A chance to develop ideas specific to your own compositional practice.
2- Participation in a focused, supported forum in which to skill share, collaborate and exchange ideas.
3 – Be given a dedicated online space for the promotion of your own work and research into this field during the project.
4 – To have your ideas and pieces performed and critiqued by leading performers in the field of digital experimental music in a concert scheduled for late January, 2014 .
5 – To be eligible for a discretionary bursary towards materials and travel costs.
Visit the website at http://www.thedigitalscore.net for more information on the project.
The closing date for the call is the 17th March 2013. There will be an initial formative ‘sandpit’ day held at Goldsmiths University (Monday, 22nd April), after which two further study days have been planned for:
- Saturday, June 8th, 2013 / University of Sussex
- October 18th, 2013 / Goldsmiths, University of London
- Concluding in two summative conference / concerts:
