Pérez, Miguel A. and Knapp, Benjamin and Alcorn, Michael

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

In this paper, we describe the composition of a piece for choir and Integral Music Controller. We focus more on the aesthetic, conceptual, and practical aspects of the interface and less on the technological details. We especially stress the influence that the designed interface poses on the compositional process and how we approach the expressive organisation of musical materials during the composition of the piece, as well as the addition of nuances (personal real-time expression) by the musicians at performance time.
