Distance learning

Distance learning

I’ve been making a new series of pieces with Tim over the past month or so which play with remembering sequences of actions in different ways. The series is called sequence studies and there are five to start with. They all have sequences of instructions read by artificial voices, and we respond once each sequence is complete. The different studies deal with ways of taxing us, including expanding sequences, swapping objects, multimodal cues and so on. We filmed them separately in response to the audio track and then synchronised the video. Some we do quite well, and some are fairly disastrous, but the piece in part uses failure to generate counterpoint.

I’ll upload the score soon, probably after making a few more, but in addition to the instructions it includes the ssml code to generate the audio files (although some also use samples).

  1. Dear James,
    It is always a joy and an inspiration to make more when I receive your posts. Your Sequence Series are riveting how they stimulate those lazy grey cells and get you sitting on the edge of your seat in anticipation. The curve of the sequences is successfully satisfying. Many thanks to you and Tim for your stimulating output.
