Stayin’ Alive: Preserving Electroacoustic Music | NewMusicBox:
“What on earth is going to happen to compositions that are painstakingly crafted for effective live performance at the time of their creation, but which become increasingly difficult to mount live, simply due to the march of time?”
It is a question we all must face when we make piece specific software.
I have a busy fall with 4 presentations dealing with aspects of my Interactive Musical Partner (IMP) research.
On Friday, September 6, I’ll present Valued Features of Improvised Musical Interactions (or What I learned from my computerized improvisation partner) at the Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
On Monday, October 14, I’ll give a demonstration entitled Interactive Musical Partner: A Demonstration of Musical Personality Settings for Influencing the Behavior of an Interactive Musical Generation System at 2nd International Workshop on Musical Metacreation, which is part of the Ninth Annual Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment, at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. The proceedings of MUME and AIIDE will be published by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence Publications.
On Thursday, October 17, I will present a poster/paper entitled Interactive Musical Partner: A Modular Human/Computer Duo Improvisation System at the 10th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research, at Laboratoire de Méchanique et d’Acoustique in Marseille, France. The CMMR proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series.
I will present a performance demonstration entitled Interactive Musical Partner: A Look at the Components of a Human/Computer Duo Improvisation System at the Electroacoustic Barn Dance 2013, which is held at The University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA from November 7-9.

Robert Henke talks with Rashad Becker about Mastering:
“Mastering means finishing a piece of music or any auditive work for a certain purpose. That purpose can be bound to free artistic ideas, it can also be related to, or referring to specific media, or it can be related to a specific purpose, like for example a certain speaker set up, or even a specific room. Radio broadcast would be also a specific condition.”
