The Animated Music Notation Workshop: Demonstrating the Possibilities for Rhythm-Based Music Education for Young Students

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Animated Music Notation workshop was designed to investigate the theory and practice of Animated Music Notation and to enable to performance of rhythmically-complex musical material by performers of virtually any age and ability. A presentation of this workshop will generally contains four sections. The purpose of Section 1 is to provide an historical and technological context, as well as a general introduction to contemporary animated scoring practices and animated music notation. In Section 2, a taxonomy of high-level and low-level animated score functionalities and symbols are posited in order to provide a consistent terminology with which to approach animated scores in theory and practice. In Section 3, attendees are encouraged to participate in a series of hands-on explorations of a variety of animated score functionalities with a focus on rhythm, and in Section 4, a theory of animated music notation is presented simultaneously with an extension of the hands-on practices experienced in Section 3. Each Section is designed to encourage discussion throughout and beyond. Workshop attendees are strongly encouraged to bring instruments, although this is by no means necessary. The NIME 2018 demonstration of the Animated Music Notation workshop will include information about various iterations of the workshop, including selected content from the workshop and reflections on its effectiveness in teaching rhythmically complex musical material to students as well as more seasoned performers.
