Movement at the Boundaries of Listening, Composition, and Performance

Movement at the Boundaries of Listening, Composition, and Performance

(p.105) Chapter 6 Movement at the Boundaries of Listening, Composition, and Performance
Thresholds of Listening

Jason Freeman

Fordham University Press

This chapter considers a number of compositional projects that thematize aural being-in-the-world (soundscapes) and the partaking of music (interactivity). It begins by citing examples of contemporary works that rethink the static, frontal positioning of listeners in traditional concert venues by allowing listeners to wander around the real space of the hall and to penetrate the performers' space, along with examples where real space and virtual spaces are layered over one another. It examines the importance of movement and navigation for understanding how listening has moved inside the musical work, now reconceived as a place where users, performers, and composers meet. The chapter also explores the interrelationships among composition, performance, and listening.

Keywords:   composition, soundscapes, music, interactivity, space, movement, navigation, listening, performance
