Open Scores Lab
LAB4: Jennifer Walshe, Robert Luzar, Oogoo Maia
Wednesday 11 January 12 – 4pm, NP.CM.131
In the fourth lab we explore physicality and scoring. Robert Luzar will present recent video demonstrations and discuss their relationship with live performance, and Oogoo Maia considers the musician’s body as a site of music-making through a series of interactive games.
In the second part we welcome composer/performer Jennifer Walshe who will present some of her recent work using multiple notational strategies. Walshe’s work is inherently physical, with natural actions and real world sources framed and abstracted as material, often placing her voice at the centre. She is one of the most prominent international new music composers, and her work incorporates found text, movement, video, social media, visual imagery, objects and sound to create a hybridised form.
All welcome. For more information please see the Open Scores Lab website.
