Performance Practice of Real-Time Notation, Seth Shafer


Research addressing performance practice issues encountered in compositions using real-time notation. These issues include the problem of rehearsal, the problem of ensemble synchronization, the extreme limits of sight-reading, strategies for dealing with failure in performance, new freedoms for the performer and composer, and new opportunities offered by the ephemerality and multiplicity of real-time notation.
