Project #1:  Performances and critiques, February 22nd and 24th

On the week of  February 22nd and 24th we will have the first of our in-class concerts. Your performance should consist of a short (~3-4 minutes) piece of music in the style of your choosing, building upon the ideas and techniques discussed in class. You are free to use your own resources in developing the materials of the piece, but you must use Ableton Live for the live performance.

As you imagine your performance, I highly encourage you use this rule-of-thumb: don’t touch the mouse. This is, of course, somewhat artificial constraint but helps to begin to move the performance beyond the technological and into something instrumental and musical. We will primarily be utilizing the controllers we’ve purchased. See the syllabus for more information.

We will discuss scheduling, logistics, and performance order together in class.
