How To Play the Piano (from Piano Glyphs)
How to Play the Piano is a version of a passage originally from the dance-music-text piece 'Semaphore' by Richard Hoadley (music and programming), Jane Turner (choreography) and Philip Terry (poetry) (http://rhoadley.net/semaphore). It uses a live audio analysis of the reading of an original piece of poetry to generate audio and, in 88 Notes, live notation to be played simultaneously by a pianist. In the first part of the piece, the poem is algorithmically remodelled textually, graphically and aurally and orally.
December Variations are automatically generated and notated variations for piano on the score December 1952 by Earle Brown.
Quantum Canticorum is an Interdisciplinary performance in which dance and music interact using body tracking technologies and bespoke sensing environments to expand our understandings of the interrelationship between the body, its environment and expression, between science and art, culture and nature. Dance is converted into data which are then used to trigger and modulate expressive algorithms which generate in real-time both audio and music notation - also performed live.
