In this presentation, Australian composer and performer Cat Hope talks about her animated notation practice and how it is used to facilitate the inclusion of electronics in a series of small and large scale works. Originally engaged to enable a focus on very low sound, glissandi and long form gestures, Hope’s notation style has grown to facilitate different types of collaborative practices across different conceptual themes and frames.
Cat Hope is a composer and performer who creates music that is conceptually driven, in animated graphic scores formats for acoustic / electronic combinations and improvisations. Her music is characterised by aleatoric elements, drone, noise and glissandi as well as an ongoing fascination with low frequency sound that threads through all her creative work.
