Graphic Scores for Interactive Performers
Capriccio has been conceived as a workshop and performance for any number of musicians and artists, comprising live graphic scoring and semi-improvised playing.
The graphic score is unique in that it is not only controlled by a conductor, but can also be altered and manipulated by the players themselves.
The world premier took place in Birmingham, UK at the innovative Network Music Festival, Birmingham in September 2014 as part of Hugs Bison’s Incubator scheme with Sound and Music researching building new audiences with digital technology.
There’s a strong emphasis on developing skills in improvised playing as part of a group, with a strong focus on both watching and responding to a live score, and listening and responding to fellow players. There is no ‘skill’ level to being a performer, just the desire to work well with others and be open to new ideas.
