This SensiLab Forum presentation examines Animated Notation – a dynamic, digital format of music notation. An alternative, rather than a replacement for traditional music notation, it is a way of communicating musical ideas where the contribution of performers plays a more significant role, and is accessible to musicians of any style or background. As a composer, Cat Hope has written over 40 works using this medium, and has led a team of musicians, composers and programmers to develop an iPad application, the Decibel ScorePlayer, that facilitates the coordinated reading of graphic notation for musicians to read. In this presentation she presents exemplars of animated notation, and outlines the evolution of the app as product of artistic research.
This SensiLab Forum was held on Wednesday 16 September at 4pm.
