Summary for March
There has been some time since last but lots of things have been happening some that have been documented in other books as some not. But a little opp summering:
Worked on a way to calculate the up-down movement of the conductor’s hand. How to use the glove to find out when shifting directions.
Had a very good meeting with Wayne in Asker March 15-16 where we did go through lots of things.
Meet with Catherine Winnes in Asker where she got to look and try the ConGlove a bit. Unfortunately, the Glove broke, one wire got loose probably overheated. But she got the feel and a little insight into my project. Next step is to find some research money for her to continue the process.
Did my presentation at Asker which went ok until the broken wire accident also ran out of time. A bit of misunderstanding between me and the moderator. Next time hands-on with an as little intro or ppt. as possible.
01.04. The class was good got some good comments on my writings and the necessary it is to focus on the conductor, therefore important to write from the conductors need and tradition instead of my need. Therefore; Write that I am using this kind of sensor not the others because they do not fulfill the conductors need or the complex gestures of the conductor.
04.04. Been studying how to set up a Thesis document in Microsoft Word, have gone through few YouTube tutorials and getting better in these.
05.04. Continue with Word and adding the EndNote technique to my writings, getting to understand the whole thing and getting a bit more excited about the possibilities ahead in academic writing.
Had a very good meeting with Espen and Mari Ann at Kaffe Liten about possibilities for performing my ConDiS composition. Did get a negative answer from the Kulturråd and therefore have to find out some other ways to finance the performance. A very positive meeting where we came up with among other things:
Workshop – Composition/Technology Workshop for students at NTNU
Workshop – Conducting in coordination with the composition/technology workshop
Fond for Lyd og bilde – Could try to find a way to …
Kunst og ny Technology-?
Bestillingsverk – include possibilities of performing in other countries and festivals try to get a letter of interest.
Nordisk kulturfond – Norway/Iceland/?
