Research/Creation seminar : Generative Notations
David Kim-Boyle is a visiting composer/researcher from the University of Sydney. He will be talking about his work with real-time, generative notations with numerous examples from recent collaborations with Australian new music ensemble Decibel, Dutch sound-poet Jaap Blonk, and the Hamburg based TonArt Ensemble. The unique musical possibilities afforded by generative notation will be discussed and he will conclude the talk with discussion of the development of a new work for the ELISION ensemble, which is the focus of his research at IRCAM, featuring the use of responsive, three-dimensional notational schemas.
