Performed by Jon Bellona, Kevin Davis, Ryan Maguire, Eli Stine, Max Tfrin, Paul Turowski, and Kristina Warren. Frontier by Paul Turowski More information here: This video was uploaded with permission from Paul Turowski. Original video: This is a re-upload. The video was originally uploaded on June 19, 2017 to Mediated Scores, which is being phased out as of May 1, 2020. In Frontier, any number of musical performers play together while collectively influencing an avatar in a digital world. Sounds made by the performers are picked up via microphone and particular features like event density, consonance, and spectral flux are mapped to game functions like avatar movement and interaction with NPCs (non-player characters). Primarily, the game/score software—written in C++ using OpenFrameworks—serves to provide a dynamic framework for musical improvisers, guiding musical choices with game goals such as exploration, survival, and high score attainment. This concert took place on 2015.10.16 and was part of Technosonics XVI, an annual concert of electronic music at the University of Virginia.
