Update #28

Kimiko Ishizaka and MuseScore to appear at Classical:NEXT

1 comment

There is a new classical music conference in Munich, Germany, this year, from May 30 to June 2. It's called Classical:NEXT, and they have a great roster of companies and individuals from across the industry involved. Tons of music publishers, record labels, journalists, and performers. The coolest part, though, is that they've selected Kimiko Ishizaka and MuseScore to give a special presentation (a category that they created just for this session) of the Open Goldberg Variations score and recording. 

Kimiko Ishizaka will play a selection of the Goldberg Variations in the Carl Orff Saal of the Gasteig (see picture below), and thanks to SampleSumo's score following technology, everybody with a laptop, smart phone, or iPad will be able to follow along with the score, in real time, as Kimiko plays. 

As far as we know this is the first time that this has been done, and we're super excited to once again be pushing the boundaries of technology and music. But let's not forget why we're able to do this: it's because of YOU, our backers, that the whole project has come this far. So again, thank you!

One more thing: we've started getting the first variations in final edited form from Anne-Marie Sylvestre, and they sound great!

      What a great use of the technology. I'd love to be there and following along. I'm so glad to be a backer of this project.
