Point Ones -
The conductor is equipped with motion sensors and through this, is able to conduct both the ensemble and the live electronics. Most of the piece is not realised with traditional conducting but with cue gestures, marking beginning of new passages - hence the title Point Ones. The aim is to be able to experience the live electronics in an embodied way and to create a fully controllable instrument for the conductor. Because of that, the piece does not use a click track or other timeline-based fixed approaches. Above those technical considerations the piece tries to play with the vocabulary of the conductor and the anticipations and traditions connected to those gestures. It is not always predictable what the result of the conductor's movement will be. The piece is part of a sequence of sensor-based works, following Your Fox's A Dirty Gold and Laplace Tiger, in which different interaction concepts with augmented instruments and performance codes are dealt with.
