BEYOND NOTATION: COMMUNICATING MUSIC

Peer-to-peer file exchange, the iTunes store, MySpace, Pandora – by 2010 it’s obvious that the Internet has radically transformed the economy and culture of selling, distributing, owning and hearing recorded music. Less discussed is the Web’s impact on that part of music that used to be called “the score”– instructions, suggestions and materials for performing, rather than consuming, music. Software required to play interactive computer music can be downloaded directly from composers’ websites, as easily as a score can be checked out of a library, and the iPhone has fostered yet another realm of publishing: Bands sell apps that allow fans to make personal remixes of their singles, while another popular app lets you play your phone like an ocarina as you jam with other players around the globe.

For Volume 21 of LMJ we solicit papers that address the impact of technological change on how we distribute instructions and materials for musical performance.
