I am now in Montréal for the Fourth International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation – TENOR 2018. I presented my case study with the hybrid notation system combining sound-based notation and traditional music notation. Everyone here is interested in working with new forms of music notation together with technology. Several systems presented so far use network protocols to distribute instructions and information to performers. There were also examples of animated scores, augmented reality interfaces for musical performance, and much more.
I’m also working on a new large-scale piece for choir, three soloists, instruments and electronics, using the English text from Haydn’s masterpiece, the Creation. I don’t know how soon I can finish this work because of teaching, research and all. Perhaps a year from now. It’s going to be 50-60 min of music, so it needs some time.
