Application of Optimization and Simulation to Musical Composition that Emerges Dynamically during Ensemble Singing Performance
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents and tests a new approach to composing for ensemble singing performance: reality opera. In the performance of such a composition, emotions of the singers are real and emerge as a consequence of their interactions and reaction and to a dynamic narrative. This paper gives background and motivation for the form, based on three key concepts, incorporating the use of technology. Then proposed techniques for creating reality opera are instantiated in an example, which is performed and a behavioral analysis done of performer reactions, leading to support for the feasibility of the reality opera concept.
