Creative Solutions to Music Notation Problems

Music Composition

As a composer, I am interested in expanding the range of performing environments for contemporary music in order to increase the engagement of the audience. In my current project, a 45-minute piece for female voices and percussion ensemble to be performed next May, I will include interactive elements that will give each audience member a unique experience.

I am looking for a research partner who is familiar with music notation software (Sibelius and/or Finale) as well as graphic editing software (Adobe Illustrator and/or equivalent).

Over the course of the year, the research partner and I will collaborate to tackle the problems that come with notating both the physical movements of the performers and the improvisatory musical features of this piece.
