Week 18: Invention

Assignment requirements

The first checklist

Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project. Prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920 x 1080) and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5) and put them in your root directory

The second checklist: Learning outcomes

Formulate future opportunities

The third checklist: Have you answered these questions…

  • Imagined and outlined possibilities and described how to make them probabilities
  • Prepared a draft summary slide and video

How will it be disseminated?

The first opportunity is traditional music media. Live performance. Recordings. Albums.

The second opportunity is academic channels. The primary one is the conference NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) , but there may be other options for journals and conferences specialising in music, performance, improvisation, digital fabrication.

The third opportunity is through education. The harp can be the basis for workshops on digital fabrication, hacking, music performance.
