Who is it for?

Any person familiar with or interested in learning more about the creative use of notation of instrumental new music, electroacoustic music and notational representation of other forms of contemporary music. Some prior knowledge of and experience with Western Music notation is required, but specialization is not necessary. The course is not explicitly targeted to any particular age group or level of experience: students, professors, musicologists and others will certainly find the topics and resources explored in the seminar useful and beneficial to their future creative work.

Although some practical examples and activities will use or refer to Finale (the instructor’s specialization) exclusively, users of other music notation programmes (Sibelius, LilyPond, Score, among others) will also benefit greatly from the courses — the large majority of the information and activities, as well as the various notational “problems” explored, are platform- and software-independent.

Workshop description

“New Music Notation: Score Design, Function and Role” is a three-day block seminar that takes a critical look at the use of music notation in a variety of musical contexts encountered since the mid-20th century. Through a series of thematically grouped modules, a range of topics related to the notation of a very broad range of styles of contemporary music will be explored. All forms of notational representation will be covered, from “traditional” notation to proportional notation to text and graphics notation, as well as the notation of electroacoustic and other digital musics.

The content — varyingly theoretical, practical, æsthetic and philosophical — covers questions of notational standards, pros and cons of specific notation types in representing different types of musical materials, basic graphic design and typography principles applied to music notation, analysis of existing scores, workflow issues, tips and tricks for unorthodox use of notation software, and more.

Conceptual Content

Differentiation of notational styles:

Creative use of notation in various musical styles; Analysis of the effectiveness of existing notations; Graphic design and font use; Efficient and extended use of existing notation software; Use of third-party notational resources.

Workshop Objectives

The seminar intends to help participants gain an understanding of broader issues of notation that are not taught in any existing educational programme. This will be achieved by:

Providing an overview of different styles of notation;

Offering an introduction to key graphic design and typography concepts; Exploring unorthodox uses of notation software in specific situations; Encouraging a critical approach to the use of music notation and notation software;

Analysing in detail notational excerpts of existing musical scores; Practical exercises and group activities.

Expected Results

The seminar will enhance the critical regard of participants in the representation of musical works, objects and processes, as well as the use of notation software. The new perspectives learned during the sessions will help participants make use of musical notation in a clearer and more precise manner in future projects, thereby increasing the effectiveness of their musical communication.

Working M ethodology

The seminar is structured as an assemblage of more than a dozen “modules” from 15–90 minutes in length and grouped thematically to form three days of lectures and activities. The morning sessions are predominantly theoretical in nature (i.e. lecture format), while the afternoon sessions feature more practical exercises and group activities. Throughout all sessions, morning and afternoon, participants are actively engaged in discussion of the materials being presented or explored.

Activities to do with the Students

Transcription of an audio excerpt of a composition unknown to the participants;

Group analysis of notation used in excerpts of select music scores from different periods; Group discussion of the effectiveness of the notation in examples provided by participants; Resolution of individual notation or software problems.

Special Requirements

The instructor will supply all necessary music scores and audio / video examples, which will be presented from his own personal computer. An Internet connection is needed for some notation examples. A video projector and audio playback system (stereo minijack to stereo playback) are required for the examples. If the seminar is to be given in a large hall, please consider whether a mic would be needed for the instructor.

Each participant will need to have a computer for the afternoon sessions (an Internet connection is not needed). This can be their own computer (Mac or PC) or one provided by the host institution, but Finale (2012 is the preferred version) or Sibelius must be installed on the computer.

Workshop Materials

No special workshop materials are needed. A suggested reading list may be sent shortly before the courses begin, but this is not essential to the understanding of the course materials.
