Semantic Dimensions of Timbre and Orchestration (Wallmark/Noble) [Studio 5]
Work by ACTOR members dealing with semantic, metaphorical, and associative aspects of timbre and orchestration will be presented. Various methods are represented in this research, including corpus analysis, acoustical analysis, perceptual studies, and interactive software development, each of which represents a valuable perspective on a notoriously difficult subject. Summary presentations will be followed by open discussion on the potential, pitfalls, and methodological peculiarities of musical semantics research.
