Shifting Practices

The MIT Press

The chapter reports on the system's demo that the project developers offered to the Music Faculty and on the Music Faculty's responses to the new tool. The teachers' hands-on experiments and different evaluations of the system are extensively illustrated. Controversial issues concerning standard and nonstandard notation, what it means to make music in the digital medium, the potential of the computer as a medium for musical composition and understanding, the multiple representations of musical objects, and the system's educational implications, are discussed in depth. After the demo the researcher wrote an extended narrative of the demo, reporting the most relevant events together with the researcher's interpretations, and handed it to the members of the Music Faculty in order to receive their backtalk.

Keywords:   system's demo, Music Faculty, notation, digital objects, multiple representations, students' exercises, composition versus programming, music curriculum, reflective tool
