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.
