"The New LNM Website - Experiments in The Laboratorie"

The Home Page
Laboratorie New Music will be revising it's site within the upcoming weeks.  One of the sections of the site will include a gallery of images chronicling the various steps we take to develop, permutate and modify our compositional processes.




A separate section devoted to WET (Words, Events, Texts) scores.




Here is a sneak peek at some of the images in the 'Experiments' section.





























" The Conjunction of Her Thighs..." Bil Smith Composer.




SCORE: 

"THE CONJUNCTION OF HER THIGHS WITH THE TITANIUM TIPPED INSTRUMENT HEADS"  SCORED FOR VIOLIN, VIOLA DE GAMBA, B FLAT CORNET, SINGLE VOICE (MEZZO SOPRANO), AND VIBRAPHONE.  2013

"Conjunction..." is a combinatorial composition of reproducible metaphors, that is a chronology of computational experiments on topics related to music, speech and language. These experiments may involve the analysis of previously published corpus data, or of experiment specific sonorities that are reconciled for the occasion. 
Other relevant referential navigational tools include computational simulations, implementations of diagnostic techniques or task scoring methods, methodological tutorials, and reviews of relevant sponsors.
Although "Conjunction" is centered in musical etymology, we aim to contextualize performance from the widest possible range of disciplines that engage music, speech and language experimentally, from electrical engineering and computer science to education, psychology, biology, and speech pathology. 
In this interdisciplinary context, combinatorial methodology is especially useful in helping experimental and analytical techniques to cross over from one sub-field to another.

On Soundcloud:

The trajectory of music should be avoided in the philosophy of science, with special reference to the way that van Fraassen sets up the difference between compositional realism and constructive empiricism.

What counts as success in music as such is emblematic/unsatisfactoy. This compositional framefront concludes by showing what may be profitably monetized replaced with, namely specific claims concerning qualitative compositional beliefs and pretenses that fall into the following categories: descriptive, evaluative, normative, and definitional.
