Scripts

Dataset

Description

Scripts is a suite of four concert pieces that can work as a collection of short compositions in their own right or be divided up and played amongst other pieces in programmes of extreme and physically taxing music to give moments of rest for the players and change for the audience.

Abstract

Scripts is a composition at the intersection of co-composition, live electronic music and adaptive systems. It involves the crafts of creative coding, improvisation and live sound engineering.
The piece has been performed twice by the Quasar Saxophone quartet in Church of the Gesù, Montreal, January 2017 and again in Greyfriar’s Kirk, Edinburgh, March 2017.
The work exists as a series of partially open scores and a sophisticated live electronics performance tool that responds very directly to sound input from the players. The system can be controlled remotely from a tablet or webpage and mixed from within the audience with no interruption to the flow of the concert.
