Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have seen an increasing number of live music performances distributed over the internet, such as online concerts and choirs. The aim of Anders Lind’s project is to explore the artistic challenges and possibilities of a Home Participatory Orchestra with new forms of score and new strategies for conducting. The traditional concert hall is replaced with multiple digitally mediated spaces distributed over the network. The traditional conductor and score are replaced by web-based animated notation. Furthermore, the Home Participatory Orchestra will embrace participants regardless musical background, who will use everyday objects and their home environment as musical instruments. The project will investigate how the Home Participatory Orchestra affects the composer and performer perspective of a live music performance. In particular, experimenting with different approaches to performance instructions, to conduct a live performance in this setting.
