20.09.17. This coming Saturday I will be using my conducting glove to control and play with a trumpet player Erik Kimestad. It is going to be very interesting and I will post some examples and “deep” thoughts after the concert.
Spent the day today working on ways to contact and control various elements of reverb, like decay time plus sweeping filter with the rotation of my hand. Had to repair the conducting glove and will have an upgraded version of it tomorrow.
24.09.17. The concert in Kristiansand with trumpet player Erik Kimestad went very well, not flawless but that was expected since this was a total experiment and very little time for preparation or rehearsing together. There I proofed that the ConDiS system can be used for other kinds of performances than conducting control. There I was able to literally “grab” the sound of the trumpet throw it into the air, move it around, change its sonority and volume values. All these things that I originally mentioned in my application for the Norwegian Artistic Research Program.
28.09.17. Afhandlingssemingar. Remember to draw a clear picture of the main aspects of the research.
- Try to have a context in headlines
Music analysis – interview – methods – headlines.
What is conducting? (headline)
Avoid headlines with only one sentence – Headlines may be exciting.
Think about chapters – Chapter 1. etc.
Put short intro into each chapter and even to each headline.
Think about transition as some kind of a conversation where the person listens and puts itself into it based on what has been said.
A large transition that points – a length of a sentence – one argument per sentence – Visual.
29.09.17. When writing about technology I have to be clear why I choose what I use. Why not use more gesture recognition?
- Not 100% accuracy. Conducting gestures are complex and not totally repetitive (see Guy Garnett research).
- Too risky, accidental gestures – Back to basics – analog – MIDI.
NB. find out if possible to get Sandy and Tone for the Forskningskonsert.
