TENOR 2018 offers a workshop for performers during which participants will study and learn selected situative scores. These will be presented at an outcome concert at the close of the TENOR conference, on May 26th.

Terri Hron, an experienced performer/composer, will lead the Performer Lab and its participants through the different aspects important in performing a variety of situative scores.

Situative Scores are defined here as animated, rule-based, reactive, interactive or other situational and technology-based scores.

The workshop comprises the following:

  • aspects of the history and pedagogy of extended/situative scoring, including working on seminal pieces
  • practical experience with scores that engage a different focus: auditive, visual and interactive
  • discussions on working out the various (technological) challenges (we will have a tech coordinator on hand)
  • study sessions of existing scores, scores by TENOR composers and scores from the TENOR 2018 conference call and keynote speakers.
  • workshops with two selected composers who will be present to rehearse and lead their pieces
