    MOBILE PHONE ORCHESTRA: NOVEL TECHNOLOGY FOR ORCHESTRA PERFORMANCES OF CONTEMPORARY ART MUSIC IN MUSIC EDUCATION2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    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.

    Animated notation in multiple parts for crowd of non-professional performers2018In: Proceedings of the international conference on new interfaces for musical expression, The International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression, 2018, p. 13-18Conference paper (Refereed)
    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]

    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.

    Put your hands together2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    THE MAX MAESTRO is an animated music notation system created within the artistic research project VOICES OF UMEÅ by composer Anders Lind. By using simple animated graphics presented on a screen, instead of a complex notated score the main idea was to enable a crowd of common people without score reading knowledge to perform a complex music composition, synchronized with an electronic music part and with very limited rehearsal time.

    During the workshop THE MAX MAESTRO will be presented and finally tested with a performance of PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER for handclapping crowd (24-2400 people) and electronics.

    Put Your Hands Together for Animated Music Notation!: Music in 24 Individual Parts Performed by Schoolchildren2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    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.

    Mapping Everyday Objects to Digital Materiality in The Wheel Quintet: Polytempic Music and Participatory Art2016In: 16th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME'16), 2016, p. 84-89Conference paper (Refereed)
    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.

    The Voice Harvester: An Interactive Installation2013In: Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Extended Abstracts, New York, NY: ACM Press, 2013, p. 3003-3006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Voice Harvester is an exploratory interactive installation that embodies human voice in physical materials. Sound input is processed, amplified and transmitted through audio drivers connected to a thin, flexible membrane that agitates the material on it. The title “Voice Harvester” is derived from the original design brief, which called for an object able to elicit non-linguistic, expressive, and naturalistic human vocal sounds to explore the full range of capability of the human voice through use of a novel, playful, and embodied interaction. This paper describes the intention, design process, construction, technical details, interaction, and planned/potential uses of this design exploration.

    Abstract [en]

    The Voice Harvester is an exploratory interactive installation that embodies human voice in physical materials. Sound input is amplified and transmitted through audio drivers connected to a thin, flexible membrane that agitates the material on it. The title “Voice Harvester” was derived from the fact that the installation create was able to elicit nonlinguistic, expressive, and naturalistic human vocal sounds to explore the full range of capability of the human voice through use of a novel, playful, and embodied interaction.

    This design exploration took place by a team at Interactive Institute Umeå under the guidance of Artist and Composer Anders Lind. The concepts of human engagement, involvement, and embodiment as well as the creation of a physical tangible thing were central to this design exploration.

    The object elicits curiosity and subsequent interaction utilizing the unusual appearance and leveraging tacit knowledge within users of the purpose of microphones. When a user speaks (or makes any sound) into the microphone they will see the materials in the acrylic tubes animate with the physical embodiment of their voice. The intent was that once this happens users will continue to engage and interact with the Voice Harvester to see the different ways in which they are able to manipulate the materials into action.

    The Voice Harvester is built as part of a series of interactive installations to be shown in Umeå, Sweden as part of the Umeå 2014 Capital of Culture and has already been exhibited at the MADE festival 2013.
