"Autonomous Robots in Opera", CANCELED - 8:30 am, Friday, February 14, 2014 - Center for the Arts Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre

Due to the impending storm and related travel advisories, all three events, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, February 14 & 15 are canceled. He sends his apologies, and looks forward to visiting Virginia Tech, another time.

Maurice Wright will discuss his collaboration with computer scientist Dr. Rolf Lakaemper, and how they presented "GALATEA_RESET", an opera in two acts for three autonomous robots, 5 singer/actors, dancers and chorus, in September 2013. Programmed in PureData and JAVA, all musical sounds in the performance except for the human singers, were realized in real-time with minimal reliance on pre-recorded audio. Beginning as an etude involving spatial manipulation with moving sound sources, the work evolved into a work of lyric music theater. Each robot was imbued with a persona resulting from a confluence of kinetic sculpture, musical characterization, lighting and movement. The performance score, encoded as a series of text files, contained directions for musical sound, lighting effects, and movement commands. A special set design provided geometric landmarks for the robots, which navigated with laser rangefinders, and dead reckoning. Navigation sensing, motion control, lighting control and sound synthesis were accomplished locally using a single laptop computer connected to a central data source.  Another laptop controlled projected images, including supertitles.

The initial design called for the music synthesis for each robot to use less than 10% of the CPU to provide adequate computing power for range-finding, shape recognition and motion control. The network design called for limited-band data flow (e.g. no audio or video, rather simple text messages), and for a robust system that allowed for robots to drop off the network without disrupting it. A UDP protocol proved both flexible and reliable. The opera was presented three times with no major errors. Maurice will play several brief excerpts of an edited, super-titled recording of the performance.




Composing Virtual Music, Seminar - CANCELED - 3:00 pm, Friday, February 14, 2014 - Center for the Arts Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre

Due to the impending storm and related travel advisories, all three events, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, February 14 & 15 are canceled. He sends his apologies, and looks forward to visiting Virginia Tech, another time.

Learning Studio, Moss Arts Center - Maurice Wright will talk about his use of the programs Csound and Povray to create visual music works in which images complement and explicate the musical sounds in a composition. He will also talk about tonality and narrative as organizing principles in his recent work.




Screening of Maurice Wright's Visual Music - CANCELED - 7:30 pm, Saturday, February 15, 2014 - Performing Arts Building

Due to the impending storm and related travel advisories, all three events, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, February 14 & 15 are canceled. He sends his apologies, and looks forward to visiting Virginia Tech, another time.

Special Event:  Screening of Maurice Wright's Visual Music, Room 105, Performing Arts Building - open to staff and students at Virginia Tech.  Free of charge.

The pieces on this program span about 15 years, and each began as a musical composition to which images were added. Beginning with simple two dimensional images, I eventually learned about more sophisticated computer graphics as the processing speed of my computer increased. The cartoon-like character of the pieces remains somewhat constant, even as more photographic images are added into the mix. My goal was to create an environment in which electroacoustic music—a challenging medium for many— can be approached by disguising it as soundtrack. -Maurice Wright

Maurice Wright was born in 1949 in Front Royal, Virginia, a small town situated between the forks of the Shenandoah River near the Blue Ridge Mountains. He received a doctoral degree from Columbia University, where he explored diverse interests that included music composition, computer science and film. He has been commissioned by outstanding ensembles and soloists across the United States, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Emerson String Quartet, the American Brass Quintet, the Riverside Symphony, and the Berkshire Music Festival at Tanglewood. The American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Fromm Music Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts have recognized and supported his work. Six CD recordings on New World, Innova and CRI include his compositions.  He is Laura H. Carnell Professor of Music Composition at Temple University's Boyer College Of Music and Dance.
