Politics I @ Peabody Institute

On March 14th at 6:00PM, the Peabody Institute’s laptop ensemble will be performing a scored version of politics I. Here, the students in the ensemble will receive instructions on what texts to submit so as to control—concretely—the musical direction of the work. Because movement one of the work is meant to be largely deterministic in its sonification (so that actors within the audience can replicate results they find aesthetically pleasing), it should be an interesting experiment in the expressive capabilities of the system. I am also speaking to the ensemble on Monday about the system and my praxis more generally and then rehearsing/workshopping the work. Should be a ton of fun!
