New Fordist Orchestral Composition
Authors: David Pocknee; Jeremiah Runnels
New Fordist Orchestral Composing is a process whereby a MIDI controller is used to create orchestral works.
The controller manipulates the live synthesized MIDI sound of an orchestra. Each slider, button or knob controls a different musical parameter.
As the synthesized version of the piece is heard and manipulated, the program simultaneously notates all the sounds heard and records the synthesized MIDI sounds.
When the piece is finished, the notation file is then rendered as a .xml or lilypond file and cleaned up in a music notation program, before being exported as a .pdf.
