Series 1 – Online
FRIDAY | 19/11-21/11 | 12.00-13.00

In the remote/connected/online part (19-21/11) you will learn to use the peer-to-peer app Sonobus, and play together with low latency at full sound quality. We will make an audio score, to be used the week later (26-28/11) on location in Bratislava for further building layers on, and to perform live with as finissage concert for the NEXT festival (28/11). 

As an exercise in embodied music, we update the good old concept of the fanfare/marching band/fanfáry/harsonaszó: playing while walking, presumably outdoors. Any small handheld objects that produce sound will do: battery operated electronics, resonating objects, your voice... We will use some megaphones and small amplifiers, but also bring your own wearable amplification if possible. And comfortable shoes. If the weather allows we will walk/play the concert outdoors.
Preferred walking speed: about 2.0 metres per second (7.2 km/h or 2m/s) modulated by time to destination, motivation, and metabolic efficiency. Let’s move!
