New Notations Symposium

The New Notations Symposium was organized by Thor Magnusson to be held at IRCAM, Paris as part of his larger project Sonic Writing

"The New Notations Symposium at IRCAM explored current notational practices in the writing for new instruments and media. The aim is to study the changes in notational strategies that are brought forward with new music technologies, where graphics, animation, and algorithmic techniques offer extended compositional possibilities. Musical notation and instruments evolve in parallel, and we find that in much contemporary work, the notation system becomes part of the instrument, or even an integral part of the musical piece itself. Processor-based media enable dynamic score systems that are applied to generate musical events in real-time or respond to instrumental performances in ways traditional media are not capable of."
