27.07. Had a meeting with Mathieu a master student at NTNU. Talk about music and need for composition training at the university.
Went through Max/MSP tutorials on pattr and autopattr. Read few pages of Slatkin.
28.07. Few things to think about: When raising my hand (arm) gesture conducting pan, the reaction is too quick. How do I make a slower respond? Tryout line object and delay.
Need to scale my volume control hand gesture needs to be scaled for larger, and smaller gestures.
I must write a short score with instructions of Volume, Pan, and Fx. Then do exersises on how much the conductor needs to interfere.
- Metronome? Is there a way to control the metronome by conducting gestures, gesture recognition.
- If the conductor needs more Volume. How does he/she interfere without noticeable sudden change?
29.07. Setup my studio at my office. Managed to set up a 4 track and all functioning fine. Sound moves in space both automatically and by moving hands in the air. A lot of fine tuning to do for preparation of performance of Etude I – IV. for electronics and ConDiS.
30.07. Found out how to make a new score without deleting the old one.
To do: Setup a template for the score so that I do not need to start from scratch everytime.
Finetune Pan and Volume. I also need to make a sound sheet for Hadron – what sound comes when… Exp.
