Date: Sunday, November 22, 2009
Time: 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Location: Det Fynske Musikkonservatorium, Koncertsal
500 Odense C
Concert featuring works by Annette Ziegenmeyer, James Howard Young, Markus Zahnhausen, Bach, Van Eyck, Telemann, and others. In addition, the performers will be improvising their own works. This is the concert that will conclude a 3-day Workshop in Interactive Music especially for the Recorder instructed by James Howard Young and Nikolaj Ronimus at the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music. Students from the conservatories of Esbjerg and Odense will be participating.
The focus of the workshop will be the investigation of, among other things, the possibilities presented by the multimedia software suite Max 5. This means that the concert will feature the following:
* The performer controls their own lighting through the sound coming out of their instrument
* Performance of more traditional pieces using Wind Synthesizer
* Variable tap delay controlled by the performer
* Works with score following, digital effects, and/or noise
* Classical works in canon form performed by one performer using delay lines
* Improvisations augmented by on-the-fly digital effects
* Works using live video camera tracking
* Denmark premiere of the results of a collaboration between Jnote.org and Base42.nl where performers of acoustic instruments control onscreen objects in a game-type environment
One of the main goals of this performance will be not only to highlight contemporary multimedia techniques and repertoire and to showcase what the students have learned, but also to exploit as much as possible the interactive capabilities of the Carl Nielsen Academy Concert Hall. All 8 channels of the hall’s Genelec system will be utilized to create spatial effects and we’ll be using projector and screen, remotely controlled spotlights, an array of pedals and other human interface controllers, several microphones, Midi instruments, and traditional performance techniques using time and space on the stage.
The concert is free and open to the public. Come and be a part something exciting!
