Situational Scores for Comprovisation (Sandeep Bhagwati)
McGill University, Room A832 (8th floor) Elizabeth Wirth Music Building, 527 rue Sherbrooke Ouest
January 20, 2016
Situational scores are here defined as scores that deliver time- and context-sensitive score information to musicians at the moment when it becomes relevant. Bhagwati’s research-creation has for some time now centered on the use of such situative scores both for new expressions in eurological music and for the exporation in trans-traditional musicking. In his talk, he will introduce his work with such situational scores, with a strong focus on the body:suit:score. This is an interface currently developed in collaboration of four labs at Concordia and McGill Universities in Montréal: Musicians are clad in a body-hugging suit with embedded technology – this suit becomes their score interface.
