6.1. Started the day with MI personal meeting at Kammersal 09:00 – 12:30. Thereafter back to the office. E-mail to Arne of Jonsvatnet Brass and send him the arrangement of “Ferdalok” and “Sprengisandur”. Did some thinking on how to use the ConGlove for the Brass. Has to be about “Density”. -Conductor very clearly gives a sign to the first player who plays a note, conductor grabs the note and moves it around.
Rest of the day for planning -PKU, MOCO, NIME, ICMC.
7.1. Home office
Reading through references and tutorials of Bach and Cage. Found some very interesting material. Repeated pattern accel and cage.harmser. cage.
8.1. Meeting with Øyvind
- Volume and Pan to start from last number (remember the last position).
Had a good meeting with Ø. where we went through various poss. to use the bach (cage) notation objects.
Been working on a cleanup of the ConDiS program. Back to the old version after few days studying “bach” and “cage”. Bye, the way got an email from Daniele Ghisi about my bach questions. See following
sorry for the delay of my answer. I must admit I don’t check Private Messages that often… Sorry about that
You can also directly write to me at e firstname.lastname@example.org e — so that I won’t miss any communication.
Regarding your question: of course, you can change whatever parameter you need. The first thing to understand is what kind of device/interface you had in your mind.
The “Graphical Synchronization” tutorial will use the gathered syntax of the whole bach.roll and will parse it through at each time. Not the handiest method (it’s an old tutorial, indeed). The “cage.envelopes” help file will give you some insight on a slightly easier method if you need to perform chord-by-chord changes. In this case, just change the “modify chord” patch as you wish (for instance using [bach.subs 1 2] or [bach.subs 1 3] will modify the durations or velocities) — In order to use this, you need to know some basics about chord syntax. You can find them by searching #chord+gathered+syntax in the Help file.
Also, you’ll need to have the basics of “bach lists” handling (they are called lllls), you should follow the first tutorial for this.
If you want to deal with panning, the best way I can think of is to use a slot containing pan information — you need to know a bit about slots then (you can maybe follow the “Slot Machines” tutorial, even if it’s a bit old also…).
In any case, anything you mention seems doable to me — the only thing is that it might require a little patching!
Do you have any specific example on which I can help? What would you like to achieve? I might just help you getting started on it?
Have to work on my answer or look more closely at the info there.
Back to basics. Fact; have to use the ConGlove for a performance with Jonsvatnet Brass coming Saturday, Jan. 23. Not conducting myself which is great for my research. The ginny pig is Arne Johansen, conductor of the Jonsvatnet Brass. He has visited my lab. few times and we have gone through some valuable info about the usage of the ConGlove. It is obvious that there is a limited amount of information that can be given at any point during the performance.
Let’s take a closer look at the score and the information that has to be given to the conductor:
The score is 31 bars and approximately 2 min. 20 sec. in duration.
There is no electronic sound for the first five bars. That means the conductor turns on the parameter(s) he wants to control (volume in this case) by giving a volume sign (OK sign) with the glove and thereafter holds his fist closed to make sure that he is hot affecting any of the parameters (volume and panning in this case).
