COLLOQUIUM (CCRMA Classroom, immediately following the concert)
- Sound Synthesis with Music IV and Music V (similar to Csound): the digital amplification of electronic music;
- The importance of perception: simulacra, illusions, composing the sound itself (Little Boy, Mutations, Songes);
- Sound Processing: digital "musique concrète" (Invisible, Sud, Resonant Sound Scapes, Kaleidophone);
- Mixed works (Dialogues, Voilements, Otro (L’autre) for bass singer and 8 tracks, premiered on february 17 in Stanford by Nicholas Isherwood);
- Real-time: Duet for one pianist. The pianist plays on an acoustic piano provided with sensors and motors (a Yamaha Disklavier): he dialogues with a “virtual” invisible partner providing an accompaniment which depends upon what the pianist plays and how he plays. Different types of relations between the pianist part and the accompaniment are programmed with the MAX software.
- Instrumental music: concerto for violin and orchestra, Schemes, written in 2007 for Mari Kimura.
