Final Project: "Computer-Mediated, Audio-visual, Composition / Live Performance
You are to craft, compose, and present / perform a "Computer-mediated, Audio-visual Work." The deliverables for the final project include:
- milestone presentations
- webpage documenting your system/performance
- the live performance
- milestone 0 (in-class, Tuesday, 3/1/2018): initial sketch, detailing vision, sound, music, interaction, aesthetics, music technology involved
- milestone 1 (in-class, Tuesday, 3/6/2018): basic working system, the minimal essential thing, with the main aesthetic and artistic loop closed
- milestone 2 (in-class, Tuesday, 3/13/2018): more complete working system, with sound, visual, and core performance
- all material (final project website containing code, data files, README) due Tuesday 3/20/2018, 11:59:59pm
- rehearsals: TBD
- final presentations / performances : Wednesday 3/21/2018, 12:15pm, CCRMA Stage
Aspect 1: "Computer-Mediated"
- must take advantage of the computer in a compelling/non-trivial way
- for example: algorithms! sound synthesis! interactive control! generative systems!
Aspect 2: "Audio-Visual"
- audio: use/combine techniques we covered in class (synthesis, generative, interaction) or something else; use ChucK
- visual: interpret this as you'd like;
- option 1: use Processing for real-time graphics/animation, coupled to audio/ChucK via OSC
- option 2: otherwise involve visuals in a core/non-peripheral way: e.g., design gestures/movement mapped to sound
Aspect 3: Aesthetics of Presentation "Fixed Media or Live Performance"
- design not only the system (sound, music, interaction, code), but ***design the presentation***, being extremely mindful to have and navigate aesthetics
- aim for 3-7 minute per piece (though your fully designed presentation / live performance can be longer or shorter)
- keep in mind setup/transition time
turn in all files by putting them in your Library/Web/220b/project/ directory, and then linking to them from your Library/Web/220b/final.html, uploading to coursework, and submitting your link to Ge and Tim
- 1) source code + sound files for your performance
- 2) written documentation (and any program notes / bios)
- 3) your final.html should link to these files
- 4) the final live performance
