Composition Seminar: NOTATION STRATEGIES IN INDETERMINATE MUSIC

  • Seminar Room 1 3 Conservatory Drive Singapore Singapore (map)

NICK OMICCIOLI presenter

The use of indeterminacy in music has grown to become a common compositional device ever since John Cage coined the term in the mid-20th century. While Cage was not the first composer to experiment with the element of chance in music, he pioneered a movement that would influence an entire generation of composers. Despite the breadth of music that exists utilizing indeterminacy, there is very little in the way of notational standards aimed to assist composers writing in this style and musicians interpreting this music. In this seminar, Dr. Nick Omiccioli will share numerous examples of indeterminate music by composers in the 20th and 21st centuries and offer composers effective notational strategies for implementing this approach.
