Visualising the score: Screening scores in realtime performance

Catherine Anne Hope, Lindsay Vickery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This paper examines the screening of music notations and the impact of this configuration in a live music performance situation. Before the development of graphical computing, Traditional music notation, was rarely shared with the anyone other than other musicians, composers and analysts; let alone displayed during the performance. However, some composers experiment with scores and their visual presence in performance by employing automated 'score-players‘ or actual films specifically developed to be interpreted by musicians. This paper raises some questions and possibilities for this new way of sharing musical qualities of composition and performance.
