  • due: in class | Thursday, November 16th, 2006
  • public performance: ffmup, November 21st, 2006
  • organize into groups
  • design a live musical performance for 2, 3, or 4 laptops + PLOrk stations/hemi speakers
  • pieces should be 3 to 5 minutes in duration

Some Potential Issues to Consider

(same as before, but should reconsider in light of augmented setup)

  • how will be the piece be performed? who/what will perform it?
  • how will the piece engage the performers? how will it engage the audience?
  • will there be a conductor? if so, how should the performance be conducted?
  • what software(s), hardware (if any), acoustic instruments (if any), will you use?
  • what are the roles of the laptops in the performance? of the humans?

(new issues)

  • how to use the hemispheres and tailor its characteristics to your piece?
  • how to spatialize (or localize) the sound?
  • what formation?
