Abstract [en]

MobilePhoneOrchestra.com is an online web application developed as a platform to enable performances of fixed polyphonic contemporary art music for mobile phone orchestra. The ambition is to create a new performance paradigm for fixed electronic music in multiple parts to be performed in concert halls as stand-alone electronic orchestral music or in combination with soloists or traditional orchestra settings. The participants of a mobile phone orchestra are using their mobile phones or tablets and are performing on specially developed music instruments provided online on the MobilePhoneOrchestra.com website. Animated music notation gives performance instructions and conducts a performance and are also provided on MobilePhoneOrchestra.com. A mobile phone orchestra should for best performance consist of approximately 20-60 people or more regardless their musical background and age. 60 minutes of rehearsal are needed before a performance.

Abstract [en]

The Max Maestro – an animated music notation system – was developed so as to enable the exploration of artistic possibilities for composition and performance practices within the field of contemporary art music, more specifically, to enable a large crowd of non-professional performers regardless of their musical background to perform fixed music compositions written in multiple individual parts. Furthermore, the Max Maestro was developed in order to facilitate concert hall performances where non-professional performers could be synchronised with an electronic music part. This paper presents the background, the content and the artistic ideas behind the Max Maestro system and gives two examples of live concert hall performances at which the Max Maestro was used. An artistic research approach with an auto ethnographic method was adopted for the study. This paper contributes new knowledge to the field of animated music notation.

Abstract [en]

Imagine having orchestra performances of contemporary art music involving whole school classes within the elementary and secondary school music education… Scholars have argued that contemporary art music could serve as a good starting point for discussing and learning basic music theory and the fundamental basics of music. Still, reports reveal that contemporary art music often is neglected in the music education in Sweden. Furthermore, the main activity reported within the Swedish secondary school music education is ensemble playing with traditional instruments as piano, guitar and drums. However, scholars argue that due to the knowledge level demanded to handle the traditional instruments not all of the schoolchildren are able to fully take part in these ensemble lessons. Orchestra2020.com is a web application under development by a team including the author to among other things address these issues. The ambition with the application is to enable schoolchildren regardless their musical knowledge and background to participate in orchestra performances of contemporary art music by using their mobile phones as musical instruments. The application includes a performance mode with three musical instruments and a conductor mode with animated music notation, which give instructions how to perform on the instruments. Animated notation could shortly be described as moving graphics presented on a screen, similar to the performance instructions presented in videogames as Sing Star and Guitar Hero. The development process of the first pilot version of the orchestra2020.com web application has been based on both artistic and educational aims. From the educational point of view the aim is to democratize orchestra performances of contemporary art music in music education, and from the artistic point of view the aim is to develop new artistic possibilities for performances of contemporary art music including electronic sounds. This presentation will present the background, the content and the aims of the orchestra2020.com application. Finally, it will report from a pilot study including workshops and a concert, where a professional chamber ensemble performed together with approximately hundred school children using the orchestra2020 application.

Abstract [sv]

ORCHESTRA 2020 är en webbapplikation under utveckling med syfte att möjliggöra framförande av musik för mobiltelefonorkester. Ambitionen med Orchestra 2020 är att utveckla nya former för framföranden av nyskriven konstmusik med elektroniska ljud. Anders Lind, som utvecklat ORCHESTRA 2020 vill med sitt forskningsarbete utveckla begreppet publikmedverkan och undersöka de konstnärliga möjligheterna som uppstår när stora som små grupper människor oavsett musikaliska förkunskaper kan samspela konstmusik med sina mobiltelefoner.

 

Med denna presentationen vill Lind presentera sitt forskningsarbete, integrera deltagarna i ett musikaliskt samspel och samtidigt tillsammans med dessa testa presentationen som plattform för datainsamling. Presentationen delas in i tre block: 1. Presentation av Orchestra 2020 och musikaliskt samspel där deltagarna bildar en mobiltelefonorkester. 2. Kort enkät fylls i av deltagarna med frågor om upplevelser av samspelet i mobiltelefonorkestern. 3. Diskussion om det nyss upplevda formatet med presentationen som plattform för datainsamling.

Abstract [en]

Voices of Umeå was a three-year interdisciplinary artistic research project initiated in 2012 by the author. The main aim with the project was to explore new artistic possibilities for composition and performance practices within the field of contemporary art music. More specifically, artistic possibilities, which arises when non-professional performers regardless musical backgrounds enables to participate in the composition and performance processes. The idea was to develop and explore new pedagogical methods to involve non-professional performers by using new technology and combining knowledge from the fields of artistic and educational practices. Different aspects of participatory art were embraced in the artistic processes aiming towards three compositions, including two concerts and one exhibition. An action research model in three steps –planning, action and analysis of results inspired the methodology, where the analysis and experiences of each cycle within the project were affecting the further cycles of the project.

This article reports from selected parts of the process of the project and contributes with new knowledge to the fields of animated music notation and participatory art.

Abstract [en]

Digitalization has enabled material decoupling of sound from the physical devices traditionally used to conceive it. This paper reports an artistic exploration of novel mappings between everyday objects and digital sound. The Wheel Quintet – a novel musical instrument comprising four bicycle wheels and a skateboard – was created using off-the-shelf components and visual programming in Max/MSP. The use of everyday objects sought to enable people to quickly master the instrument, regardless of their musical backgrounds, and collectively create polytempic musical textures in a participatory art context. Applying an action research approach, the paper examines in detail two key cycles of planning, action, and analysis related to the instrument, involving an interactive museum exhibition open to the public and a concert hall performance conducted by an animated music notation system. Drawing on insights from the study, the paper contributes new knowledge concerning the creation and use of novel interfaces for music composition and performance enabled by digitalization.

Abstract [en]

Put Your Hands Together is a 6-minute composition written in 24 individual parts for handclapping people and electronics, by the author. The Max Maestro - an animated music notation system, which enables non-professional performers including school children to perform complex musical structures with no rehearsal time needed, conducts the performance. The sounds and the animated music notation of the composition are embedded in a single video file available online, to make it suitable for easy use in an educational setting together with schoolchildren. The main aim with Put Your Hands together, from an educational perspective, is to enable schoolchildren to perform and learn about complex musical structures used in contemporary art music, by using new technology. The development process of the Max Maestro – an animated music notation used in the composition is a work in progress, which was started within the artistic research project Voices of Umeå in 2012. The development process was and is based on the artistic ideas, experiences and knowledge from the author as a composer/ researcher, inspiration from animated music notation systems created by other composers/ researchers and analyses of performances and workshop sessions, where the animated music notation system was and is adopted. An action research model in three steps –planning, -action and -analyse of results has primarily been and is further used as a method in the process. This paper aims to; - present the content and ideas of the composition Put your hands together and the background of the Max Maestro –an animated music notation system, and set future visions and ideas related to animated music notation from an educational perspective.
