Nina Whiteman – Video notation and performer creativity

Wednesday 16 February 2022, 12-2pm [online via Minerva]

Nina Whiteman discusses her shifting approach to notation since 2018, beginning with TOMB (2018) and its underground moving images. Work since has explored video scoring as a playful means of communicating with musicians who might not read staff notation (e.g. I’m not a robot, 2020) as well as developing highly prescriptive notational systems from physical gesture (e.g. Forbidden, 2020).
