APST 813 - Sound Painting

HC CNDP
2 credits
Sound Painting is a live composing sign language where music and the composition are created in real time. The sound painter stands in front of a group of musicians (or dancers, thespians) like a conductor. They give various signs which the musicians then choose what to play within those parameters. E.g.: “Whole group, long tone, middle register, slowly enter” - the musicians would choose what note to play (within a mid register), what volume to play, and when to start within 1-5 seconds. The result is somewhat aleatoric and new music like. While there is a sign for free improvisation, there are no improvisation skills required making it easy and accessible to all musicians. We will meet for 1.5 hours a week and students are expected to practice these techniques for 1 hour a week
