Guest lecture at the School of Music Composers’ Forum

11 Oct 2022 - 4:00pm to 5:20pm

Notation as Interface — configuration spaces, transformation tools, and multiple nows

David Rosenboom will discuss a selection of his scored works in depth to illustrate some of the technical details in his compositional methods and sources of inspiration. These may include: musical configuration spaces that map adjacent and contingent possibilities for performances, systems for transformation musical shapes with measured similarity and dissimilarity among elements, notation as interface, emergent forms inspired by models of evolution, multiple independent times, collaborative strategies, and other concepts as circumstances suggest. Both recent works and relatively historical ones will be included. Interactive discussion is encouraged.

Featured speakers:

− David Rosenboom (George A. Miller Visiting Professor)

− Eli Fieldsteel (Assistant Professor of Composition-Theory and Director of the Experimental Music Studios

at the University of Illinois)
