08.11.16. Did work on DB instructions many who also will be useful for the other string instruments. Have to make decisions on how to notate use of superball, hands, nails e.t.c.
Did get going with finger design also useful for conducting instructions?
09.11.16. Home office reading Gunther Schuller “The Complete Conductor” with lots of highlighting. Tried out OSC- route instead of jcom.oscroute to find out if it had a better response. Unfortunately not a big difference. Have to think about the possibility to control Live via Max.
10.11.16. Worked on descript of my program for NOTAM. Emailed 15 pages to Notto, have a Skype meeting tomorrow.
Worked on Ext. notation for DB. Wrote emails to Diane, Ingibjorg, Notto, and PKU about March seminar.
Illus. about narrative structure…
Why I did come up with the Glove in historical context.
Empirical – Theory
Argument ————–chapter ——————-conclusion.
Introduction to my research.
Historic context – Its place historically how it falls in place with the evolution of the conductor’s job. with a special focus on the conductor.
Technological context – carrying out the technological part of my research
Practical matter – How I use my research or the digital glove for my music composition. Writing new composition.
Use Theory to understand Empiric
Theory – method – Empiric
Theory – Tests – Empiric. -> is the theory correct? -> New theory -> New Empiric.
Experiments (tests) can lead to new theories.
Choose your own enemies but do not have too many.
Talk to text – In this book NN talks about…
Focus on fewer items and write about them thoroughly
The argument is partial -> Vitenskap – Science.
17.11.16. Need to record some sounds and put them into Live to make examples on how the can change with the use of Fx. Have to explain both how these changes of sounds are written into the Program and also who the conductor can process them in real-time.
There are different theories in progress with conductors, for example how accurately they should follow for marks in the score, e.g. tempo, strength … When does a cresc… start and how strong should it be. How much ritardando should be out there. is a fortissimo (FF) the same in Mozart as in Beethoven or Boulez. Write these questions and other similar questions to conductors such as Szilway, Gupta, Winnes, Ilan, and D.Bjarnason more…
18.11.16. In contact with NOTAM. Sending Ableton Live files as well as the Track-setup patch. Tried to use Collect and Save, had to do brush up my memory and knowledge in Ableton Live.
13:00 Meeting of the IM in Olavshallen discussing and introducing the FoU and documents from various groups. Very informative meeting, unfortunately, had to leave early.
21.11.16. Home office + office got some mail from Asbjørn at NOTAM. The files sent on Friday and let’s say the Live project had absolutely all the collected files missing. Started to work further on my paper intended for ICMC, MOCO, and NIME. Was able to do some work although a lot of time used to find out how to use EndNote and link it to Word/Pages. Also connection map Fitz sent to NOTAM.
22.11.16. Woke up in the middle of the night (04:00) and started to learn more about EndNote. Vent through the YouTube tutorials and did some discovery. Still, have to find out how to import files from the internet to my EndNote library. At work did prepare few pages intended for NOTAM explaining the build-up of the ConDiS system. Also used the time to learn more about Apple pages.
23.11.16. Working on documentation, preparing a paper to be submitted to NIME, ICMC, and MOCO. Have written a substantial text about the background history of conducting. Have to get more into the research part i.e. the technical things. Also, need to do some graphics on my tests like how the sensor is working. Why I choose to use this or that. Why I did go away from the gesture recognition to more simple and straightforward old MIDI messages. Should mention Wayne Siegels advise that sometimes the new things are not totally there and simpler and older things are then more reliable. Also, other ideas such as face recognition using Kinect.
