My Master's Thesis - Computer Performance

Hey all,

As some of you know, for the past two years I was attending graduate school pursuing an MFA in Electronic Music and Recording Media. This past May, as part of my graduation requirement I had to compose a work of significant length, and also write a paper of significant length. I have decided to make the writing available via my blog. I go on a bit about performance, and the state of modern electronic musicianship in my post, but the writing is far more compositionally and technically oriented. I think that some of you who do performing, or are looking to get into performing may find it an interesting read.

Re: My Master's Thesis - Computer Performance

your thesis looks interesting. i enjoyed reading it, but i only read half of it. your performance impressed me. this type of electronica is usually not my thing because i like steady rhythms. the sounds you used are what got me hooked

Re: My Master's Thesis - Computer Performance

Nice to get a bit more detail on what's going on in that performance.

Most of the ideas there aren't anything new to me but it was all presented very well.

I agree that the ideas generally aren't new, as far as performance goes. I do think that the classification of different approaches to performance, as well as the relationship between the time frame of a musical decision and it's impact on the audience as a meaningful gesture is important.

I like steady rhythms too, but irregular ones are far more interesting. The second half was very much about the sounds. I spent a lot of time working on that sonic palette.
